I hope this message has you feeling better. Holy crap man, as much as I am happy to find you, I am sorry for your pain and troubles.....I feel ya!
Thank you for sharing your situation and chronicling it so well here, I just start off saying that it is much appreciated.
I want to connect with you on your posts and our mutual mind and body **** as well as put my situation out there as well.
I had ulnar nerve transpo back 5/27/14, so 10 weeks ago which seems like a lot longer come to think of it. This followed elbow dis
location and reconstructive surgery. My entrapment was a post symptom of surgery. I came out of elbow surgery in wacked out pain, due to entrapment of my nerve which I did not know at the time. I was in a very bad way and it quickly became apparent that I was trapped. Soooo, after a nerve study at 2.5 weeks after surgery, the neuro told me and my ortho 100% blockage and surgery is imperative quickly. Sho enough I had an hourglass pinch on the nerve from scar tissue or some and the damage was done. Now I have a resulting injury that has become WAY more paramount than my initial catastrophic mountain bike elbow dis
The pain out of surgery took the wind out of my sails for many weeks and though not as horrible as it was still very uncomfortable. I never heard if nerve pain before this b.s. and now it was loud and clear. Huge shots of pain, 10/10 were coming through by the minute. Narcos didn't work, as we know for nerve pain, and as much lyrica I could take didn't seem to be doing crap But if they say it works I don't want to try this pain w/o it, right. My hand felt like it was run over by a steam roller...a truck, stiffness, soreness, electro burning stinging......like Sandur said...so hard to explain...because this is not what we're accustomed to, like ouch doesn't cut it. And that is frustrating when trying to tell anyone who will listen(got loved ones, docs,pts,rabbis,fellow hurt people). That is why I can ramble here. I have been searching...I feel on an island with this injury....this isn't supposed to happen, this was gonna be the summer of our lives....ride, surf, hike, jump, party.........screaching halt! We fight...which is exhausting with this. I realize i am feeling sad and pre occupied for/with myself....and I am...and if your reading this maybe you are too...duh that's what brought us here...to share
4.5 and 5 are numb and sting all day daily(lemon in wound style), the tip of my ring finger was very painful and has started to gradually lessen, the interface where numb and fee connect is the war zone, scar numb, numb like, feel like ass numb, elbow kinda recovering, no lateral motion in fingers, pinky is out in left field and like wood, nanu nanu out of the question, fist hurts(no really), wrist swollen and on fire, phil lesh is a living legend, my physical therapist is a saint, my surgeon had/has good intentions but. sleep meh,
It seems mm by cm and hair by bloody hair feeling may be coming back....the insidiousness of this injury is one night or morning you feel you are coming back and you get put back in check real quick...is it excruciatingly slow or are we not moving forward at all. Man I'm deep.
I have some obvious appts coming up to determine my prognoses as do you. Please let's keep this forum rolling and be in touch. Herb works surprisingly well. I had never used it as the medicine that it is.
