  • lump in elbow crease?

    Hello all. I've had a lump in my elbow crease for a very long time now (years). Sometimes there is no pain at all but sometimes the pain is quite sharp. I'm guessing that's because it might be pushing down on some nerves in my arm. Every doctor that I've gone to tells me it's not...

  • Ulnar nerve transposition

    Anyone do subcutaneous transposition vs the intramuscular? Says heal time is less .. one month? Did the nerve stay in place? Is it more prone to injury since not below the muscle? Heard adipose flap is better than fascial sling technique. Thanks

  • Olcranon fracture and flexion

    Hi there, A month and 3 days ago I had surgery to repair my fractured olcranon. The bone broke into two so the surgeon was able to use a screw to splint the bones together. However there was a chance that this might not work because of the way the bones grab together–they might not line up properly......

    I had an ulnar nerve transposition 2/22, 5 days post op, and I have a lot of numbness on my forearm below my elbow.. It was never numb before the surgery, only my pinky and the side of my hand.  I'm assuming this is from the surgery itself? Should I be concerned? Help?
