Ulnar Nerve Surgery

I recently had ulnar nerve surgery on October 19th, 2012. I had a Subcutaneous Transposition. I am still experiencing pain around an 8 on stretching my arm. And certain stretches really provoke my nerve. At this point I can only lift 1 pound. Also my grip strength is 11 pounds. I can't even drive. Should I be worried about this? When can I expect a recovery back to ice hockey? The doctor says full recovery from surgery is 12 weeks. I am having a hard time believing this right now with all my difficulties. Also I am really aggressive on my therapy.

I forgot to ask if it is normal that I cannot get my elbow guard on yet either?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
As suggested by your doctor, as the postoperative swelling and inflammation subside, your symptoms should improve. According to a study, patients treated with a postoperative cast returned to work at an average of thirty days after surgery whereas the group treated with immediate motion of the elbow returned to work at an average of ten days.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
