Surgery next week

I'm having thumb arthoplasty surgery next week and am concerned about pain and recovery time. How long can I expect to wait until I can do routine activities like personal grooming, etc. Any help out there?

Hi heidi101,

Here is some information about arthroplasty that you may find helpful. It says that recovery can take anywhere from several weeks to several months depending on where your surgery was performed and of course on an individual basis. Please let us know how your surgery goes, and we will be hoping for a speedy recovery!
