Cubital Tunnel Release Surgery
I had cubital tunnel release surgery last week. My fingers are now numb/super stiff/weak. I had normal emg tests too. Is this pain normal in recovery?
After cubital tunnel surgery i'm still facing the same symptoms though up to 40 % less than before. Should i be concerned? (it's been a year)

I have cubital tunnel syndrome in my left elbow and it is starting in my right. It is not bad enough for surgery. What can I do to ease the pain?

Carpal tunnel involving the median nerve at the wrist has a very quick recovery with many people feeling better immediately after surgery and returning to work sometimes in the same week or at most 3 or 4 weeks later.

Had tennis elbow and cubital tunnel surgery this morning about 9a with nerve block, my arm is just as numb as when i left center, should i be concern?
Ligament release: The transverse carpal ligament is the superior border of the carpal tunnel.
