I had ulnar nerve transposition at elbow Sept 1st, 2016. Prior to op broke left wrist, was crushed when drs just put in cast at hospital casualty. Ended with surgeon having to re-break, pin/plate but. Was not successful, had carpal tunnel surgery, bone graft hip to wrist a total of 5 ops in 5 years. Pins/plates removed but during surgery unexpected complications: 2nd carpal tunnel, cut from centre of left palm, and unexpected another bone graft (bone bank supply) 1st bone graft hip to wrist. Hand started clawing & very weak. Am left-handed & was scared would lose use of hand completely. Neurologist/x-rays showed major ulnar problems, hence emergency ulnar transposition. Had in cast from fingers to upper arm. Initially no pain but few months later pain started up again. Now I suffer from major hand/finger/fore-arm cramping despite massages, exercises etc. Becoming a big problem again. Read up can be permanent damage that I will have to live with? Baby (pinky) & ring finger pain again. Surgeon advised no injection cannot be given in left arm or BP taken either. But worried about
the cramping and severe weakness of thumb in particular. Any ideas to help please?
