Care For Your Dressing
Please do not remove your dressing or change it. The dressing protects your hand until you return to the office, and removing this dressing could disrupt repaired structures, causing a poor result. Keep the dressing clean and dry. Keep the hand elevated, either on two pillows while lying down or in the sling provided. Commercially made waterproof covers are available in the office. Do not let your hand hang by your side as this will cause swelling and increase pain.
