Debbra, met with my surgeon after a new x-ray. He is pleased with what was shown. Recommended
exercising the elbow/arm by bending it the way we do when we eat, comb our hair or scrub our teeth. We push it a little further with our left hand just slightly to avoid pain. Over time the elbow should be brought back to full use. There still is pain that requires Oxycodone and Tylenol but in reducing amounts. Eventually all this will pass. Thanks again for your interest, Jim
