What is the usual recuperative time after trigger finger surgery on dominant hand? In other words, when might I expect to at least partially use hand?

In brief: Trigger finger
Typically you can use the hand for simple tasks right away.
Wound takes 10-14 days to heal. Palm can remain sore for 3-4 weeks. Good luck!

In brief: Days
I recomend that patients keep their bandages for 3 days but begin moving and using the hand immediately.
Will be sore as long as the sutures are in and then be swollen for several weeks.
