Tell me about your experiences with heterotopic ossification excision, ulnar nerve transposition, or, best of all, both.

Followup to the question about my numb finger
: After getting a CT scan and an EMG (yow!) I now have a diagnosis of severe ulnar neuropathy; the HO from the original elbow injury is entrapping the ulnar nerve at the elbow. They're going to open up the elbow, get rid of some of the extra bone, and put the nerve in a better place. Does anyone here have any experience of this kind of surgery? What should I be expecting from the procedure, and what's the recovery like? Any questions I should be asking the surgeon before going ahead with this?
