I am 19 and Just got elbow surgery!!!
scope+debudement on left elbow. had an olecranon bone spur. shaved that down a little bit, it was too pointy. this happened on the 12th, i go back on the 25th to get stitches out, and to officially take off the dressing/bandage. this was done at Shands/UF/gators. they also sent me home with rehab exercises that i have to do every waking hour. recovery time he said is no more than a month, just the first week should be a little painful.
i can straighten it/bend it, not as painful as first couple days. not even taking the oxycodone anymore even though i cant use that arm yet. i accidently opened the fridge with my left arm.....not going to do that again. It still hurts when I straighten it.
im not going to have regain strength correct? just have to wait for the pain to go away right? doc said i can start lifting again few weeks after procedure, just light at first...
o ya i also got 2 cortison injections. 1 for each tennis elbow, they hurt the day after! lol
