Hello,

I had ulnar nerve transposition Intra-muscular 4 weeks ago by a world re-nown Plastic Surgeon Dr. Mackinnon in St. Louis.

I was told to do full range of motion 4 days after surgery when I got the cast off. I am now 4 weeks and when I massage right above the scar around the elbow are I get a shock down into my pinky and ring finger - like the shock I had before surgery but in a different place. Obvisouly because they moved the nerve but I am nervous why am I getting a shock when I massage this area? Did the nerve move or not under the muscle enough? Is this normal?

I can just tap the area and get a shock down into the pink?? Will this get better or is this something to be worried about?

Would appreciate any response! Thanks

Hmmm....well, I landed here too with a question about severe pain of the ulna at the wrist (which I have now decided not to post), because there are no headings for joint and bone issues. The Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Forum was as close as it got to the ulna. Thanks anyway.
