Hello Sir,
You should know that It is common to have some soreness in your palm after this surgery. Most probably, It will go away on its own. You still have to follow up with your doctor. Frequently raising your hand above your heart can help reduce swelling and pain. Recovery is usually complete within a few weeks, but it may take up to 6 months for all swelling and stiffness to go away. Medications such as Pregabalin “Lyrica” can help, and you can consult your doctor about that.
Physical therapy and finger exercises may help as well.
Wish you all the best.
