Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
I am a UK GP, but commonly manage post op wounds and complications. What is your query please?
How long ago did you have the repair please?
Okay thanks. So with a tendon repair, in some cases it can take up to 6 months for full recovery in regards ***** ***** Typically most symptoms have improved by 3 months, especially the strength, but the function can take longer.
Hand therapy is what will make this as fast as possible.
That is best answered by a physiotherapist, as you do not want to force something if contracted, regular stretching is key.
