In brief: Minimal symtoms
The problem should be resolved and most patients return to activities as tolerated the day after surgery.
Work may take a little longer due to tje type of work.

In brief: Relief
This is a relative minor procedure in the hands of an experienced surgeon with a very small incision with a few restrictions post operatively but providing almost immediate relief.

In brief: Resolution
Surgery is usually done with a local anesthesia, sometimes with sedation.
Usually takes 10-15 minutes. At the end of the procedure, the thumb should no longer trigger or lock. You should be able to begin moving the thumb immediately, and progress to light use as tolerated. Sutures removed at 10-14 days, then work on scar massage.
