Mobility at 11 Weeks Post-Op
November 26, 2013
So, I just met with the doctor who did my surgery and he said that I am ahead of schedule with my progress. This video here shows what I am capable of in terms of movement. He said that my median nerve is beginning to reanimate the muscle in my hand and in about 3 months I should have full sensation back. The lump on my wrist under the incision (you might see it moving up and down as I open and close my hand) may just be some swelling where the tendons were sewn together and it should go away on its own, meaning no ultrasound treatment. I am scheduling down in therapy as of next week and I will only be visiting once a week with the same rate of at home exercises. Overall, things are great and I will check in as soon as I have updates.
