Been 12 days since my elbow (in the swelled up area) started hurting again due to my hand exercises. The pain is better now but still bothers me (especially after sitting at computer for long, I don't know why), even though I am on pain medication (diclofenac sodium, 50 mg 2 times a day). The doctor told me that it might be a muscle pull due to which I am experiencing pain. Any comments as to how much time it took you all for the swelling in the elbow to subside fully and how long you were on pain meds after the surgery?
Also for the last 2 days or so, I am experiencing a weird pulsating feeling in the meaty area between my thumb and first finger, and different parts of the hand and upper arm, sometimes during the day. Do you think it is normal?
Also, did you all get this surgery done by hand surgeons? My surgeon wasn't a hand surgeon but a top notch neurosurgeon in India, who however hasn't performed many cubital tunnel releases in his career (he told me the last person he did transposition for was 2 years back)
