Ok you can see my post on this. I had the surgery a year ago. I am still having problems and it is actually getting worse. As far as the actual surgery itself it was a piece of cake. I was in and out within 4 hours through same day surgery.
After a couple of days I had soreness but it was quite bearable.

Re: carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve surgery

I had carpal tunnel surgery and ulnar nerve surgery about 5 weeks ago. The numbness in my hands is much better now. I still have pain in my hand, they said it takes about 3 months for the hand pain to go away. The elbow surgery, the nerve was moved away from the bone. I have about a 2.5" scar and a little pain still. At his point, I am satisfied and have the other hand scheduled for Dec 4.
