Ask your surgeon: Varied rehab protocols, all that may be correct, exist between different surgeons. Generally early on, range of motion through a limited arc and isometric strengthening, followed by gradual progressive conditioning and strengthening and avoidance of forceful training for an extended period of time.See 2 more doctor answers

No: If the finger feels real hot and remains that way for more than 24 hours, you need to see your surgeon as you might have an infection.
I had lateral epicondylar release with tendon repair 7 months ago & when my arm get cold it hurts until I get it warmed up. Is that normal?
Unusual but possible: Tennis elbow surgery – lateral epicondylitis release and repair, is commonly associated with a protracted time to recover. At seven months though, I would expect most soft tissue changes from surgery to have recovered and remodeled. Pain associated with hypothermia suggests relative poor circulation to the tissue that improves with heat and revascularization; frictional rubbing helps with both.
I had right lateral epicondylar release/tendon repair 4 months ago. A p.T. Asked which tendon did u get repaired? How many tendons on the outer elbow?
ECRB: Lateral epicondylitis ("tennis elbow")surgery involves surgical debridement (open or arthroscopic) of the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ecrb) tendon origin. Degenerative tendon here often has a 'fish flesh' appearance. Surgeons often 'drill' small holes in the lat. Epicondyle after debridement. Other tendons here: ecrl, epl, edc tendons (abbreviations).
Variable: The amount of pain one experiences after surgery varies from person to person. Any surgical procedure will cause certain levels of pain in the post operative period. Surgical technique is important in preventing unwanted complications. If surgery is needed, I would recommend researching the doctors in your area and try to find one with high patient satisfaction.See 1 more doctor answer
Peroneal tear/ruptur: The peroneal tendons, either the brevis or longus are examined after the incisions are made and after confirmation is made via an mri. Usually the tendons are partially torn, the frayed pieces are removed and the longitudinal tears are repaired with fine sutures. Wraps can be used to cover the tendon (bovine, porcine or amniotic membranes.See 1 more doctor answer
Motion: This question should be answered by your surgeon or therapist. They will want you moving the finger, but not necessarily with the muscles of your forearm. They may have you use your other hand, or have you extending your finger but not flexing it. Your surgeon is the best person to tell you what to do.
Months: Most sensation will return within 3 months, but it can take longer.
Maybe: With cuts deep enough to cut the tendon, one or both of the nerves in the finger could be cut or "bruised". If it felt normal after the injury, but before surgery, the feeling could be from swelling.See 1 more doctor answer
Entrapped nerve: You should see an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon.
