Hey guys I got through my surgery perfectly!
Doctor said my elbow is perfect...Just going to be sore for a few days. The plate went into my wrist without a hitch. Nothing really hurts except for the incision but they said my arm may sweat under the cast and the rest of the iodine on my arm may be going into it...no biggie as I'm not allergic just annoying haha. Also my fingers keep twitching haha....it's because they had to move tendons and stuff around to put the plate in...It's really funny, I just sit and watch them twitch haha
Doctor said in a week and a half my arm will be out of the cast and I'll be starting physical therapy that day. He said as long as I follow his instructions to a "T" I'll be back in the saddle doing light riding in a few weeks
If you have any questions about the surgery or what they did feel free to ask....it's definitely a learning experience or those who have not had this happen to them
Also thank you so much to those who kept me in their thoughts and offered words of encouragement....you guys kept a smile on my facee everytime I read the thread
Sorry about grammar mistakes as well it's more difficult thsan I thought to type one handed haha
Also here are some Xrays during the surgery...before the plate and after.
First 2 are before
Last 2 are after
You can definitely see a huge difference in the way my arm looks in the side shots(the ones on the right)
