Had Ulnar Nerve Transpostion surgery 6 weeks ago and now I am having extreme pain in my Median Nerve, Have not had any feeling in my fingers since my nerve block was done before surgery? What should I do?
You should go to a neurologist to check for functioning of your nerves both Ulnar nerve and median nerve. (Present status) You need to know about the complications of the block, and was it perfectly given?
You would need to start some Physical therapy and discuss all options with the neurologist.
Another thing we want to add here is it takes long time for a nerve to get its function back. Sometimes it takes couple of years.
It’ll probably take more than a year for the nerve to repair itself if your nerve has been compressed pretty bad for which the surgeon had to go for Ulnar nerve transposition surgery.
Recovery depends on how bad the damage to the Ulnar never was and the type of procedure done.
Medicated creams and stretching exercises to continue.
