Carpal tunnel help! / de quervains surgery

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi everyone,

I had carpal tunnel open release and de quervains decompression on my dominant hand 1 week ago.

I can nearly make a loose fist now and I can touch thumb to fingers. Can't bend fingers all the way yet etc.

When I've been doing my exercises, my carpal tunnel scar goes soooo tight. It feels like things are getting stuck in my palm. It doesn't hurt its just very tight stuck feeling... Is this OK? If its scar tissue... Will continuing exercises help? I can feel my tendons gliding through sometimes... Again not painful. I'm just hoping this doesn't mean too much permanent scar tissue has formed!

Also my hand is a lot colder and feels soooo cold sometimes but doesn't change colour.

Just wanting reassurance. I start hand therapy in 1 week for de quervains.
