Is It Normal For My Hand To Swell Post Arthroscopic Surgery On My Wrist?

I had arthroscopic surgery on my wrist Tuesday under general anestesia. I was fine post. Today hand is really swollen and now am getting a scratchy / itchy feeling in my throat and lips. Is this normal? I have only a Taken Tylenol for pai, and just took 25mg Benadryl.

Hi,

Post arthroscopic surgery this will be a common thing to happen. you need not to worry much. Swelling happens as a protective mechanism and it gets vanished once the hand is started to use. Also you can take some sessions from the physiotherapist so that you regain the full ROM and full strength of the hand.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
