De Quervain's Tenosynovitis


Hey guys and girls

I have De Quervain’s tenosynovitis in my right hand oddly enough it’s what got me out of my office chair and into the gym. I’ll be having an operation at the end of January and I will be in a cast for two weeks and then there can be up to 4 weeks rehab after that.

Now when it comes to training I wont have use of my right hand, is using machines and just using my left hand a smart thing to do or a bad thing to do?
