Can I use the gym after having 7 stitches

Patient: Can I use the gym after having 7 stitches in my wrist yesterday? Or would that cause them.to rip?

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.You should definitely not use the gym. Stitches are used to hold together skin that is s till raw. If you use the gym, the pressure will increase on the hand and cause the skin to tear apart. Once the wound has healed, you can use the gym.I hope this helps you. All the best.
