Long story short, had ulnar release surgery in Dec 08'. Nerve was not moved. Only hurts if I go full extension or try to underhand throw something that is heavy. Pain remains local in my inner elbow area. Just behind the menial head. No pain down forearm to fingers and no numbness or tingling. 1st DR said my ulnar nerve getting pinch (hence the surgery). I went to a 2nd DR that thought it was the nerve as well and mentioned moving the nerve. He sent me to a 3rd DR (hand/upper extremity specialist) who said I had snapping triceps syndrome. Its been a year since the pain started so I'm getting a little tired of it. Who should I believe. Anybody else have this problem.

Thanks.
