Re: To have surgery or not
Hi I've had two, first one was ok but the 2nd one has been rough lots of osteo in the joint. You'll need some button up the front stuff, forget the bra for about a week, be sure to do you at home pt and take pain meds before pt.
I took an old pillow case cut the long end off and put elbow in the corner tied behind neck to support it while showering.
I have a low pain tolerance so for me to answer that question wouldn't be fair.
Unfortunately, mine is still hurting bad had surgery in may last tear. They want to replace it eventually, don't know if I can go thru that.
Good luck, cathy
