How long does it take to heal from tendone surgery in the hand?

Depends

Hand_ulcer
It varies, based on complexity of the repair, number of tendons corrected, and your general health. Your finger/hand may be immobilized for several weeks, and perhaps a few months before all recovery and rehabilitation is complete.Your surgeon will outline this in detail at your pre op visit. Good luck.

How long does it generally take your hand to heal after carpal tunnel surgery?

It depends...

In my practice, I allow patients to return to routine activities of daily living the same day of surgery. I encourage typing and light gripping immediately. The bandage is removed after a week, at which time the incision could be washed normally and dressed with a bandaid (avoiding submersion for total of 3 weeks). Load bearing and heavy gripping (manual labor) is resumed usually after 4 weeks.

6 weeks

I'm not exactly sure what type of surgery you had, but in general most wounds have healed and inflammation has resolved in 6 weeks.

Time to heal after carpal tunnel surgery? I had surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome two weeks ago. I understand it can take months to heal completely, but how long should it take for me to see improvement? My hand is still pretty swollen and stiff and I st

6 weeks

For most patients, they are able to gradually resume most normal activities around 6 weeks after surgery. Most do not require occupational therapy on the hand. However, OT can be helpful if the recovery is slow.

How long does it take to recover from a general anesthetic for hand surgery?

Depends

Extremity-upper-hand
The recovery from anesthesia can be anywhere from a few hours to a few days, depending on what medications are used, how long your surgery is, your age and other medical conditions you may have. Effects from local anesthesia (numbing medicine placed at your surgical site) usually last for 4-24 hours.

Dr. Bauback Safa answered:

How long does nerve damage typically take to recover from hand surgery?

Roughly 1mm/day

Hand_surgery
Peripheral nerves, if cut of severely bruised/crushed, can regrow/regenerate but the rate depends greatly on the age of the patient and the presence of other medical problems. Young, healthy patients typically regenerate ~1mm/day but there is a lot of variability. A lot also depends on the severity of the injury itself.
