Right ulnar nerve transposition 9/30/2014. New bruising and swelling at wrist with severe [burning] pain down forearm into D4 & D5. Is this normal?

No. The bruising around the wrist may be the result of blood from the surgical site, slowly tracking down the forearm. If there is new numbness or weakness you should see your surgeon.
