Get Up & Moving – My Weight Loss Journey

I haven’t blogged a whole lot on my personal blog over the past couple years and I hope this year that will change. I’m currently more active and blogging on my fitness and weight loss blog that details my lifestyle and weight loss journey. The website is called Get Up & Moving and I’m sharing tips about how I lost over 110lbs in just under a year.

Ulnar Nerve Transposition Surgery – Update 4

One of the most popular posts on my blog is about the Ulnar Nerve Transposition Surgery I had almost 4 years ago. I thought I would give a quick update on the status. Today, my arm still gets tired really quick and I often have tightness and tingling in my fingers. The most interesting is if I put pressure on my elbow area it gets a warm hot feeling to it. The scar is long and nasty looking and often pinkish. However, on the upside the dull aching pain I had is gone.

The doctor did tell me it would take about 5-6 years for the nerve to repair itself. If I had to do it over again I would do more research.
