good news.

Quick update. Doc says my arm is healing nicely, no more wearing that contraption, and I can use it again. Just need to be careful, no heavy lifting, but it is good to go! Surgeon asked me when I would like to see him again, I hesitated, and then said NEVER, lol. He said good answer, only need to go back if I have a problem. Woooo hooo!

I never heard the details of what happened to your elbow. I lost the radius head in my right arm in 1994. It took a couple of years to get back to the point that nothing bothers it. I've been in the middle of plastering the walls in an 1828 house for the last few weeks, and no arm worries. The plastering requires strong pressure against the trowel with the right arm almost full time, all day long. I can't throw a baseball like I used to, but it doesn't hinder my golf swing.

Tom did yu have surgery? My left arm is giving me trouble at the shoulder and I am left handed. Lot of things I can't do, but hoping it will cure itself with not using it.

Yes, I had surgery to remove the radius head after it exploded when I instinctively tried to catch myself in a fall with an outstretched arm. Yours sounds like it may be a rotator cuff issue, which won't correct itself. I've known of a couple of people who had a rotator cuff completely torn loose from the shoulder to have them re-attached laproscopically, and are now fully recovered. I'd have it looked at. Some of the things they can do these days are pretty amazing, and if it's a rotator cuff injury, it's something that can absolutely be fixed.
