Take usual precautions about any movement which stretches the fascia subjectively causing you should get okay-just do finger movements and wrist movement practice within limits of tolerance

Thanks for writing to us.
The mild pain that you are having is normally seen due to mild fibrosis and the scar tissue in the affected area. This pain will subside with regular hot fomentation and physiotherapy stretching exercises.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
