Are you doing physical therapy? What modalities are being used, if you are?
My surgery was back in 1996, when a cast would be applied for 6 weeks and then removed for the start of p.t. The modalities used back then seem rather different from what is being done these days.
My left ulnar nerve sheath was split open by a traumatic injury to the elbow and the nerve was rolling over the bone anytime I bent and straightened my arm.
My right ulnar nerve subluxates on occasion of strain...like push ups or pushing a heavy door.
I have no 'snapping' though.
The shoulders are a different story and my physical therapist says it's mostly from instability issues. Perhaps once you are further along in rehabilitating the elbow, it will be more stable and the snapping you experience will cease.
Please don't overdo!!!!!
Thank you for the comment. There is no PT or rehab necessary. I was simply informed to ease myself back to lifting and get scar tissue massages along the way. My hand feels great and numbness and tingling has subsided. This snapping of the triceps tendon is just as bad if not worse than the ulnar nerve subuluxing pre op. I am only 7 weeks post op and I understand there is still lots of scar tissue in my elbow and it will take time to really get that proper blood flow and circulation back. My dr. told me I had no signs of arthritis or anything in x rays so this should go away on its own. He also said it may never go away. There is no way I can continue to deal with this. A big reason I even opted for the surgery was to allow myself to weightlift pain free for once, hopefully this figures itself out. If not, I will have to find a way to fix this.
