Hi I have read your description . your EMG report say that your ulnar nerve is involved. How exactly is it involved? Probably re compression of decompressed ulnar nerve. If there is pressure on the ulnar nerve then it should be released , else the compression may become worse and numbness may increase.And it probably has nothing to do with shoulder dislocation or fracture greater tuberosity.
