I am scheduled for Ulnar Transposition Surgery (elbow) in two weeks. I have started doing serious research on recovery times and success rates and I am starting to get cold feet! My main concern is the fact that I have been suffering with this for at least 8-9 years. It has taken me this long to find a Dr.that actually diagnosed the condition and reccomended surgery! I don't have any muscle wasting which is good, my nerve conduction test showed definite problems at my elbow, and my Dr. tells me I am a good candidate for the surgery, but this has been going on for so long how realistic is it that I will recover any sensation and motor function? I am a professional guitarist so this is a major decision for me. I can play now with some slight limitation, but at least I can still play pretty well. My Dr. has told me my recovery time should be around 12 weeks with some P/T and O/T to assist. I am just not sure now though.
