    I'm having the left wrist done on 9/28, with stitches coming out 10/9. I have a gig scheduled 11/25 to play what should be pretty easy music with an acoustic country singer. In the experience of those who've been through this, am I being too optimistic regarding recovery time?

    that really is a question for your orthopedic hand surgeon. I've had 7 surgeries on my fingers and it took 4 to 5 months for me to play melody (banjo, octave mandolin, guitar) after each one (with two taking close to a year each). I'm not sure how long it would take to get strength back on a wrist
