You mean where they dig out the joint in the base of your thumb? I had that done a few years ago

After I got the cast off, thumb wouldn't move at all. Started physical therapy that day. Took several weeks before I could touch thumb and pinky finger. You can google the surgery and see it done... don't eat before you watch it tho.... ask me how I know

It did take a while but I don't think it took a year. I got probably 99% mobility and strength back in 6 months or so. Physical therapy was well worth the time and pain investment.
