38 years experience Hand Surgery
Quickly: With my patients, i generally let them use the hand same day as the surgery though they have a small bandage and they can't over do it. Stitches usually come out at two weeks and the following week they can pretty much do what they want. If there is weakness or other co-morbidity associated with the median nerve entrapment that of course needs to be factored in.
