since I broke my elbow. I still have soreness and pain in my hand/wrist area and right at the elbow, if I put it down on something hard.
The doctor says it can take several months for that to wear off.
But I have been exercising my arm, straightening it out, moving it up to my shoulder, etc. because I don’t want to lose my range of motion. The doctor told me to do that and I did a little. But then MP from church said that he has a friend who can’t straighten her elbow beyond about 25 degrees because she didn’t move it enough. So then I really got busy working it.
I can use it a lot now.
It still hurts to turn a doorknob that goes more than 45 degrees. And I can’t move my hand certain ways without pain. I’m still moving it though.
