Anyone have frozen elbow?

Good evening @martydav. I am sorry that you have had such a problematic injury. I don’t think I can be very helpful. However, @amandarjro did tag me to share my experiences.

I fell down the mountain and broke my elbow in three places. I was in the hospital for three days because I also messed up my shoulder on the same arm. That led to multiple surgeries and a reverse shoulder replacement. But what about the elbow. First there was much less pain than the shoulder. Secondly, the arm and elbow was casted which kept me from banging it around and making it worse.

Here’s the smile……….When I went to the orthopedic clinic to have the surgeon cast the elbow, I was shocked that I was the only adult in the waiting room. It seems that in the summer there are a lot of young baseball players and other athletes getting broken bones.

I didn’t know that casts came in colors…..so I chose purple and then let the kids decorate it. Some fun……

What is your next step? Have you had X-rays?

May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.

Can you still use your arm? I also had a reverse shoulder surgery at the same time.
I have had xrays and they don’t explain why I cAnnot bend my elbow. I am so handicapped right now.

Found out with a new surgeon that the shoulder hardware is broken inside and will need to be fixed. Will also need new Surgery on my elbow. My first dr was not great. I’m hopeful that someday my arm will work again.
Thanks for your story.
