In brief: Cubital tunnel sun

Outpatient surgery.
Long arm splint typically for 7-14 days depending on your surgeon. Limit lifting to 5 lb and gauge activity based on swelling until 6 weeks post op. Usually favoring the arm somewhat for 8-10 weeks.

In brief: Ulnar surgery

Basic wound healing in a month, but recovery of the nerve may take three to six months, or even longer.

In brief: About 4-6 weeks

4-6 weeks to fully recover from the elbow surgery, although the tingling etc might recover more slowly.
Most recovery from tingling would be obtained in 6 months, although in some patients it can take upto 12 months or more. It entirely depends on the severity of the nerve problem to start with. Good luck!
