A little update:

My wrists are doing a lot better. I started some light playing on Friday, like 3-3,5 minutes. Been playing a little every day since then gradually increasing the playing amount. So far so good. Unfortunately, my playing has taken a hit from the injury and rest. Hopefully, I'll be back in shape soon enough.

@HP -  Indeed, as above - good to hear - just don't rush the process - well, you'll understand that already of course !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

I fear you are increasing how much you do too quickly.  When it comes to tendon repair, going slowly wins the race!  I was going to recommend asking your Dr. for a referral to a physical therapist, until you said you're doing so much better.  BUT, as one who is being treated for a different tendon-involved injury by a physical therapist, I can tell you that your practice should not cause any pain.  If it does cause pain, you are likely doing too much.  Short sessions are better than long sessions.

It takes a long time for tendons to repair.  Keep that in mind.

Best of luck!

I'm happy to hear that you are doing better. These things do take time to heal.

@sf_bev I understand your concern. I'm taking it easy. Doesn't experience any pain or discomfort while I'm playing now. My doc even said it would be totally fine for me to start out with 10 minutes of play and go from there. I went for less than half the amount that he suggested just to be on the safe side. I canceled my lesson for today as well to give it another week to heal with some small amounts of exercise within the limits of my wrists.

Thank you all for your encouragement.

@HP, glad to hear you are doing better.  Keep your practices short and light.  ANY pain indicates you are likely doing too much.  Use it as a sign that it is time to stop or take a break.  Hoping you well!
