Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, anyone had/have it?
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is in the elbow. My ulnar nerve is loose and without support, causing numbness and pain. No surprise, got it while kayaking, smashed it on the side of my boat hucking waterfalls, even with my elbow pads. So options are to do minimal non-surgery (ice, meds, braces) and hope for no nerve damage as I get older or to consider surgery and move it to the inside of my arm.
Being the nerve that gives my hand grip strength, its not something I want damaged. The orthopedic I saw, said because I'm young there is more chance in the next whatever many years to do more damage to it. Since there is no support, the nerve bundle pops in and out of the groove in the elbow when I bend my arm.
But moving a nerve? That's complicated anyway.
Anyone had this before, either the syndrome and/or the surgery? Just curious on options, what has worked, what hasn't. Recovery time, risks, complications.
