    I voted no, because I say no, but not necessarily because of bleeding. Whenever you have an injury like that you’re not supposed to work out for a week- just from what people have told me, not because I have cut my hand.

    I would wait for your doctor’s response.  Honestly, asking for real medical advice on a web forum is never a good idea…  You need to hear from the doctor who knows the severity of the wound, pronogsis, etc.

    @bestbuddies:  I think it totally depends on the type of cardio. Does it involve lots of arm movements and punching? Then I’d say no. But if it’s “just” running, and you can wrap your hand up so the wound is well-supported, you could probably do it. If your thumb hurts while you’re exercising, stop and just take a walk or something.

    In high school, I had to get 7 stitches across my face after a soccer game at a tournament.  My teammate was at the ER with me and got 5 stitches on her forehead.

    We both played in our soccer game that afternoon with just a bandaid to cover the stitches (and the doctors were fine with this).  We also played in 2 more games that weekend.

    I see no reason why you shouldn’t do cardio. (ETA: so long as it isn’t boxing or something!)
