I had a trapeziectomy 3 months ago and although I am keeping up my physio I am still in a lot of pain and can carry no weight in my right hand. How long does it take to see improvement?
Hello again AudreyJane I have just welcomed you to the forum on your other thread
I added a couple of links to threads discussing the surgery you mention. Hopefully you will find them useful.
What I will say is that 12 weeks is probably still fairly early days after surgery and we do all heal at different rates. We very often have members feeling that they aren't progressing as fast as they had hoped.
I hope you get some reassurance when others who have had the same operation come along with their experience.

Hi AudreyJane - you are doing very well for a newbie

I hope they help

If you follow the links given you can probably see for yourself but it is a bit confusing at first, isn't it? Just click on the link and then click on any post you want to expand.
Will you be seeing your physio again?0
