Yep, I think you are returning to activities too soon. Swelling means tissue irritation...running and cutting will aggrevate that healing tissue. My recommendations is stay away from tennis for a few weeks. Remember, tissue heals generally within 6-8 weeks. Give yourself some time to heal!!

The SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is formulated with a medical grade mineral oil (USP) which gradually dissipates onto the skin to help reduce scar tissue after carpal tunnel surgery and to protect sensitive scar tissue against friction, abrasion, and pressure.
