Will be at 4 weeks April 5 was told not to grip until then. I have done simple movements I was given at surgery release. I am beginning to have pain in thumb when flattening my hand. Is this common.

Hello. Thank you for posting today.

It can take up to 6 weeks (or more) to fully recover from this type of surgery.  Ask your doctor if flatting your hand should be done at this point in your recovery, as it is causing pain. You might need more healing time.  More information on recovery below.  Copy/paste the link.
