The anaesthetic will take a few hours to wear off so you may still have some tingling in your hand.

Your hand will be slightly swollen and this is helped by elevating your hand above your heart. Sometimes people like to wear a sling to help them remember. This settles over a week or so

A gentle movement of the fingers is encouraged from day 1 and very light normal daily use is also advised.
