Surgery - Thoracic
In brief: Slow recovery
Important thing is to make sure of the diagnosis that the problem is at the elbow where the ulnar nerve is.
Make sure the nerve studies are accurate. It is common to mistake problems in the neck or elsewhere for problems at the elbow. The recovery after surgery takes a long time and you need to follow all the exercise regimen.

In brief: Ask surgeon.
If your surgeon told you that you would probably benefit from an ulnar transposition he can certainly be able to tell you what to expect.
