Is anyone familiar with Anterior Interosseous Nerve Palsy (AIN Palsy)? I have been diagnosed with this. It has caused three of my fingers to be numb, weak and painful. The doctor wants to do surgery. I am 88 and had rather find another treatment if possible. There would be an incision from my wrist to my elbow, long healing and lots of work. (I don't know what kind of work) I understood him to say that sometimes it take years to have fingers return to normal.
