Depending on the type of surgery you have, you may need to wear a splint for a few weeks after the operation. A submuscular transposition usually requires a longer time (3 to 6 weeks) in a splint.
Your surgeon may recommend physical therapy exercises to help you regain strength and motion in your arm. He or she will also talk with you about when it will be safe to return to all your normal activities.
The results of surgery are generally good. Each method of surgery has a similar success rate for routine cases of nerve compression. If the nerve is very badly compressed or if there is muscle wasting, the nerve may not be able to return to normal and some symptoms may remain even after the surgery. Nerves recover slowly, and it may take a long time to know how well the nerve will do after surgery.

We need Trace our resident Physician to explain the pathophysiology and prognosis of Fields upper extremity .
By the way, we need the consistency of Kleiza now.
I hope BC is working on finding someone to fill in to the role as a back up. 10 day contract I guess, maybe Pietrus is available.
So does that mean he doesn't suck THAT badly?
As a Knick fan... This would explain his shooting woes after year 1. He was definitely favoring his arm last season. Hope he returns to normal soon for you guys.
AS MJ WOULD SAY " IS THIS SIGNATURE IN VIOLATION NOW..."

well lol that explains a lot
I can't believe Josh Howard just went for the vet minimum. He was a guy I've always liked, even after his surgery. Not the same all-star but a great pickup for an injury-riddled Wolves team.
"Juuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside. Wild Thing tried for the corner and missed."
So what's happening to him now?
This bum got his money and now rides the Bench injuried
Btw the Knicks were smart letting him go cause the signed Ronny brewer whose better than fields for the vets minimum
Fields better at least be good at giving motivational fist bumps.
