    Trigger Finger Surgery
    Jmach1 posted:
    Good day all,

    Yesterday I had trigger finger release surgery on three fingers on my left hand and I am looking for some information:

    Since the freezing wore off I have been experiencing a great deal of pain. I am very swollen up to the second knuckle and unable to fully close my fingers, nor am I able to extend them fully; they remain bent. Trying to extend them hurts much more than trying to close them, but both actions are extremely painful. The pain is at the point of incision and runs al the way up to the middle knuckle on each finger, and is most painful at the middle knuckle.

    I was not given any pain medication so maybe this is normal?

    Is this normal? It has been about 20 hours since the surgery.

    Should I be trying to close and extend my fingers this soon after surgery? Should I be working them out or allowing them to rest?

    When should I start exercising them?

    Any information would be most helpful, I am very worried.

    Thank you to all,
