Double Pulley Lat Pulldowns Vs Single Pulley Lat Pulldowns
I had ucl repair of my right thumb and a1 pulley release of right thumb, but still have pain and popping, what could be possible cause?
I'm online now. Type your question here. Is swelling/numbness typical, in thumb, post A1 Pulley Release surgery, 3 days out?

Your surgeon should have provided some post-procedure information/instructions. If pain/swelling/numbness increase or you have other questions, contact your surgeon. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Issues such as arthritis, contracture, tenosynvitis and more severe preop status may need longer recovery but the surgery generally eliminates the source of the locking if that is indeed i. ...Read more
