In brief: Different strokes...
For different hand surgeons.
Some splint for a few days. I just use a soft wrap around the butt of the hand for 48 hrs. Then it can be removed and the hand washed normally. Stitches are removed at 10-14 days.

In brief: Light dressing
Typically, i employ a light bandage that allows for full movement about the wrist and fingers.
Since the incisions for carpal tunnel surgery are so small, splints or casts are rarely necessary.
