Dr. Rohde describes when a woman can return to work after having carpal tunnel release surgery.

Dr. Rohde:
It really depends on your occupation. If, you know, everybody is very different. And a lot of people who do desk work they will take a day, maybe a couple days off and then they will go back to doing some work and not have a problem. In terms of if people are doing manual labor, a lot of lifting, a lot of heavy activities, I generally tell them about six weeks or so.
