In brief: Cmc arthroplasty

Typically needs to have hand therapy by a specialized therapist.
Talk to your surgeon about what the next step is.

In brief: Post-op thumb care

If you are still in a splint, then your surgeon only wants you to move joints that are not splinted.
Generally, at this stage gentle rom is allowed if you have had a trapeziectomy, suspension arthroplasty and ligament reconstruction with a split tendon.
