Discuss...: Discuss this with your physical therapist. They will be able to add a massage component to your rehab. This will help relieve the tightness in your forearm.

Gently: Gently massage them out. This should not affect the outcome of your surgery. Your therapist may be able to help you with this as well. Thanks.
