Overuse?: Did you use your thumb heavily last week? If you have been protecting it as you heal, and now you're using it more normally, the swelling may be normal for 6 months after surgery. If normal use continues to cause swelling and stiffness, see your surgeon. Be very careful to not overprotect your thumb! too little use allows swelling and stiffness. 2 minutes of exercise every 30 min really helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
