Transcript

Recovery from surgery is much quicker now with our modern techniques. I had a friend who I did his surgery, he wondered why he even took the afternoon off and wasn't back at his auto body shop. But you can't be out there doing the wrenches straight away. People can be back in clerical things generally within the next day, maybe a couple of days. Maybe you'll have your surgery on a Friday and get back to work on a Monday. However, if you do landscaping and you're the pick and shovel guy, you're not going to want to be on the pick and shovel for really probably 6 or 8 weeks. The danger being that you're cutting that ligament. You don't want the tendons in the nerve to come through that ligament. So generally you best take good care if you are a physical person in your work for probably 6 to 8 weeks.
