I had lateral epicondylar release with tendon repair 7 months ago & when my arm get cold it hurts until I get it warmed up. Is that normal?

I had lateral epicondylar release with tendon repair 7 months ago & when my arm get cold it hurts until I get it warmed up. Is that normal?

Unusual but possible: Tennis elbow surgery – lateral epicondylitis release and repair, is commonly associated with a protracted time to recover. At seven months though, I would expect most soft tissue changes from surgery to have recovered and remodeled. Pain associated with hypothermia suggests relative poor circulation to the tissue that improves with heat and revascularization; frictional rubbing helps with both.

ECRB: Lateral epicondylitis ("tennis elbow")surgery involves surgical debridement (open or arthroscopic) of the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ecrb) tendon origin. Degenerative tendon here often has a 'fish flesh' appearance. Surgeons often 'drill' small holes in the lat. Epicondyle after debridement. Other tendons here: ecrl, epl, edc tendons (abbreviations).

What is invovled after a peroneal tendon repair?

Peroneal tear/ruptur: The peroneal tendons, either the brevis or longus are examined after the incisions are made and after confirmation is made via an mri. Usually the tendons are partially torn, the frayed pieces are removed and the longitudinal tears are repaired with fine sutures. Wraps can be used to cover the tendon (bovine, porcine or amniotic membranes.

What exercises do I do after a tendon repair in finger?

Motion: This question should be answered by your surgeon or therapist. They will want you moving the finger, but not necessarily with the muscles of your forearm. They may have you use your other hand, or have you extending your finger but not flexing it. Your surgeon is the best person to tell you what to do.

Is it normal to have altered sensation after a flexor tendon repair injury?

Maybe: With cuts deep enough to cut the tendon, one or both of the nerves in the finger could be cut or "bruised". If it felt normal after the injury, but before surgery, the feeling could be from swelling.
