Dr. Rachel S. Rohde shares how long after carpal tunnel release surgery women should wait to lift heavy objects.


I generally ask women not lift anything more than that five pounds for about six weeks after the surgery. People do feel it even if you try to turn the key in the ignition within the first few weeks. People generally feel it because cutting a ligament does change the anatomy of the carpal tunnel. And so it takes a little getting use to.
