It’s 6 and a half months since I had my right ulnar nerve transposition (ie it was moved) and, at last, I’m off the antibiotics that have been part of my life since the operation – the chest infection has finally cleared and I am feeling a lot healthier in myself. It was a massive operation – I’d didn’t quite understand the full implications of ulnar nerve transposition recovery – let alone with recurrent infections, but I’m getting there.
As I said in my first post about the operation, I was planning to write on a monthly basis about my recovery but that hasn’t really worked and to be honest, there wasn’t a huge amount of change to report each time anyway. I was back to see the consultant at University College Hospital in London last week so it seems time to write again.
I have full movement in my elbow and my ‘glide’ is good – that’s how smoothly I can bend and extend my arm. We expected this to be good anyway due to my Ehlers Danlos Syndrome; my elbows have always had a degree of hypermobility so, for once, I have done what was predicted.
