How long does it take for the hands or feet to get dry after the surgery?
The effect of surgery for the hands or feet takes effect immediately. The patients who go into surgery with wet hands or wet feet will feel the drying and the warming effect once they wake up. These immediate results often bring tears and very strong emotional responses from those patients who have suffered with the issue for most of their life and realize they no longer have to suffer. It should also be mentioned that in about 15 to 25% of the cases (3-4 days) they may feel wetness coming to their hands or their feet which lasts only a short time (minutes to a few hours – very rarely). This is a self-limiting process which is explained by the evacuation of sweat that is stored in the sweat glands.
