    1st of all, I hope the surgery went well! As far as exercises, follow your Dr’s advice first of all. Any stretching exercises you can do daily is going to help, both in the short term and long run. Other than that, play that guitar. Nothing helps build guitar hand muscles better than playing guitar.

    94B23587-A16D-4CC4-ABF3-634EB3E8B14F.jpeg I have been using these since my spine surgery. There are several different types of hand/finger strength devices out there. Just do a google search. My only suggestion would be to not get the cheapest ones. I made that mistake and they do not work as well as the ones you pay a little more for. The ones in the picture are what I have (these are the good ones).

    Maybe should ask your doctor about physical therapy to help you along.

    Yeah, I think that you shouldn't be asking anybody but your surgeon (and any physical therapist the surgeon sends you to) for advice like this.
