Update 3

Posted 12-31-2014 02:33 PM by Tori358

Hi all! I am 22 days post op and doing well. I noticed yesterday that I have about a 2-3 inch strip on the underside of my arm that is completely numb. It starts about my elbow and goes down my arm. Other than that I would say I'm doing quite well. I am able to bend my arm pretty easily. My incision looks like its healing well. I still have Steri Strips on it which I can remove in another 3 days. After I remove them I was told to start massaging the incision with something. I will try some coconut...

Doctor does not want me to grasp anything with that hand...

So here is my first update since my last entry. Today I am 10 days post op and my pain level resting is a 2. When I use my arm too much, my pain level becomes a 4-5. The swelling has gone down and I do not have any bruising that I can see. All of my nausea and dizziness is gone and I'm feeling much better. I have noticed some prickly feelings coming from my wound, probably the stitches. That bugs me more than anything else. I am only taking Aleve now and only to help with the inflammation. I don't...

My experience with Submuscular ulnar nerve transposition surgery

Posted 12-14-2014 02:48 PM by Tori358

I found out about two months ago that I was going to need surgery on my ulnar nerve due to my nerve being pinched. I went online trying to get as much information as possible so that I would know what to expect with this surgery and so there would be no surprises. I decided that I wanted to document my own experience with this surgery so that in the future, people needing to have this surgery can get a better idea of what to expect. Most of the experiences I read aboutnonline about this surgery,...
