    Howdy Mr. Lee,

    See my sig... I went through this plus the Guyon's release and A-1 pulleys in April 2008. Mine was a subcutaneous transposition, and like you on the right arm. :-) If I remember right, I was given Percocet, and I didn't even use half of them. I had more swelling issues than I had pain post surgery. My scar on my arm is pretty hard to notice if you don't know it is there. Same for my hand. Take care. It will get better.

  • I also had subcutaneous ulnar transposition on both arms. It is painful initially but will subside. I would avoid typing until the pain lets up.

    Best wishes,

    Marianne

  • Been there, done that. The Subcutanious transposition is probably the easiest transposition surgery to recover from. Did you have this, a simple release or submuscular? The first 3 days seem to be the worst. By week 2, you are pretty used to everything. Then the next big event is getting the bandaging, splint or whatever your doc used removed. You will think your arm will never be the same. Range of motion will be crappy, but it returns pretty quickly if you follow the exercises your Doc will give.

    I stayed on pain meds for the first 3 or 4 days. Then I did it as needed and at night. Ice is your friend :)
