Has anyone on here had a frozen elbow?I do . Six weeks after a bad break and PT.
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.

@martydav No way………..and no one saw it on the images. Would you please continue to share your journey with us. That will be so helpful for other members to learn how do continue the journey in spite of hardships.

No one saw it until I hired the best elbow expert in Dallas. He took more xrays from so many different views and that is how he found it.
I go for revision sometime in the first of December.
My heart aches that I must go thru this again.
I have been in terrible pain since September , daily.
Going thru 8 weeks of aggressive physical therapy
Per doctor’s orders only now to find out it was in vain.
I am so sorry that you have to go through the surgery and therapy again.
I am happy that you did get the answers to the why. I hope all goes well this time.
