It’s almost two weeks since my cubital tunnel surgery, nerve transposition on both elbows, and I’ve recovered very well. I’m really quite good with physical stuff, it’s the emotional stuff that I’m hopeless at. I haven’t forgotten that. The worst part of this surgery was most definitely my histrionics before the surgery. But that’s part of a much bigger problem that I’m working on and fodder for another post.
Every surgery, and every body, is different. Therefore every person will recover at a different pace, and will feel a different degree of pain. I need to remember that, as everyone does. Some very well intentioned people warned me not to get both arms done at once. My surgeon herself said she does it rarely and only in select cases, but she was confident I would cope. And I am very glad that I had both arms done together. One surgery, one anesthetic, one anesthetists bill and one hospital bill.
