I can't actually help you with your diagnosis, however I can tell you that My husband was an aspiring Rugby "league" player who broke his elbow on another mans shin in a game.  This caused the actual end of the elbow to break off.  I know this is not the same however in the process certain nerves both from the accident and the operation have caused a similar symptom.
This is something that may never fully heal but each day it gets stronger.  For a long time he did strength building but was not allowed to push weights as in the bench press and shoulder press.  There are certain excersises only that he is allowed to do.  
I would definately go see someone to look at the nerves etc as this is something that age may play you against in the future
Good luck with your results and may start slow and not go further until you feel it is capable of that
