Radial Nerve Surgery?

Has anyone on T-Nation ever had surgery for radial tunnel syndrome/radial nerve syndrome (an entraped radial nerve in the forearm/supinator)?

I’ve had an entraped radial nerve for 3 years and have only now had it properly diagnosed. Up 'till recently the incompetent doctors I’ve been seeing have been diagnosing it as persistent tendonitis when it obviously wasn’t.

Active Release Technique has been an absolute godsend treatment for me, but I believe I’ve plateaud after reaching 70-80% recovery. Though I can lift weights for the first time in ages, it still hurts during some lifts. I’d like to hear if others have undergone surgery to take care of this issue.

Any comments would be appreciated
