Hello,

The symptoms of hayfever will not have any negative effects on the surgery scheduled. In fact before surgery day also, they will do all the possible precaution tests to make sure that surgery goes well and you get benefitted more.

But post surgery you need to do regular physiotherapy exercises for the elbow muscle strengthening and range of motion and also undergo Pulmonary rehabilitation under a cardiorespiratory physiotherapist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
