FREEDOM

The follow up to my surgery has gone really well. Wrap, bandage, sutures, all gone!

I mean, it’s not 100% perfect. I get to spend a week trying to regain full range of mobility myself and if I cannot, I get to call and schedule physical therapy. This isn’t the most pressing for everyone here. I need to rebuild some endurance and strength as well. It’s really not the end of the world now that the wrap is off. Now I’m told to move back into normal with a new 5 inch scar forming, and hopefully in the next few months, the nerve damage will heal. It could take up to a year or never fully come back. The biggest win is that it shouldn’t get worse any longer.

Tomorrow, I get back to work. I was given the clear to do anything except soak the arm (so no hot baths with it under water and no swimming in the pool).

I can bend my elbow again, though. FREEDOM.

Physical therapy can work miracles. Hope your PT goes as good as mine. I recovered completely. The burning pain is totally gone. Good luck
