Exercise: To exercise your wrist use a Nerf ball or a all that is squeezable and flex the ball 25-50 times ,2-3 times daily to loosen up the stiffness in your wrist

It depends: on the type of operation, the time elapsed since the operation, and other clinical factors. Best bet is to talk to the surgeon about activities following surgery.
