2nd surgery with ulnar nerve
I recently went through my second surgery with my ulnar nerve. The first surgery they did the transposition of the nerve, put me in a cast for 6 weeks. I was in terrible pain, it was unbelievable. That lasted for 10 months, just had second surgery the ulnar nerve was stuck from the first surgery. Unfortunately the pain level is the same. Pins and needles in the fingers, hand feels like its crushed, whole arm from elbow to hand in server pain. I did alot of research on moving the ulnar nerve, the bad news its 50 50. And thats what doctors won't tell you about the surgery. They say it takes 1milimeter a day for the nerve to heal, sorry over a year and it isn't better. If they would have told me the possibilities of the pain level and its a 50 50 chance I would have nevered went through that surgery at all. The worst decision I ever made. The pinch nerve was way eaiser to deal with. I lost over 40% of my muscle. And what gets me the most, Doctors will cut into you, and they won't tell you all the truth about that surgery, then after the surgery they use the excuse well not all surgery's are successful. Really be real with the person up front. And let the patient decide if he wants to take a chance of enduring horrific pain. Trust me a pinch nerve is not life threating.
