Arthroscopic surgery on elbow

I had elbow arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies and other bone masses on May 7th. I still have pain and I can't do a lot with that arm. The doctors say it's normal but I hoped it would be better by now. I have RA and osteoarthritis and other autoimmune diseases. It's so frustrating I also have chronic fatigue and have no energy. I'm trying to work full time but it's very hard. Any suggestions??
Thanks

@ktgirl Having prolonged discomfort after surgery can be very taxing on the patient, especially when it is in an area where you need movement. Has your dr prescribed any physical therapy to keep scar tissue from building up? That might be a partial solution. Please let me know what he/she says when you ask!

Hello @ktgirl. You will see that I have moved your post back into your original discussion on your elbow surgery. I did this to give others who joined you an update on where you are at as well as to continue the discussion. I see that @gingerw has also responded now as well so will let you reply to her question.
