Anyone know what returning to swimming is like, after 6 weeks of minimal arm use and PT? How long it takes to build back to training level, following this surgery to shift the ulnar nerve so that it doesn't snap across the bony part of elbow with every arm bend, causing pain and numbness and weakness?

thanks in advance for any and all experiences, be they first or second hand. from what I can tell this is primarily a throwing-sport problem, like baseball and especially pitching...

My papa had this procedure done and I know it took him maybe a little over a year to fully recover. Did you talk to your doctor about training and what you could do to help heal better and faster? Perhaps you might want to consider a physical therapy that can work with you more on getting back in the pool.
