Dislocated Elbow Injury need some advice

April 16 I dislocated my elbow while snowboarding
I had the ulna bone put back (reduced) about 1 hour after injury (after x rays were taken)

then in a splint for 2-3 weeks
I have been to PT(physical therapy) 3 times

I have been trying to stretch my elbow /arm with PT exercises given

now it June 8
for extension of arm I still have about a 20 degrees bend
and
for me to try and touch my shoulder I can get 4 inches away if I push with the other hand

seem like some swelling still exists - when I push on outside of arm near elbow I can press in and then feel a "dent"

I am so ready to have full use of my elbow

has anyone had this type of injury?

what happened to you?

does my rehab sound normal?

I would appreciate any feedback

thanks
