Radial head fracture
 
Anyone ever do this? I did Thursday night. Waiting to have a ct scan to see it I need surgery. Wondering what the recovery time and experience anyone has had. It's killing me not to be on the water for up to 6 weeks

If you need surgery, Do Not attempt to rush the recovery. You can make it a lot worse.

No, or turn it side to side.

the not being able to rotate doesn't sound great. mine was cracked almost all the way around but it was still in place. but I also did mine in Singapore and was 7-8 days before I saw Dr that could actually tell me something.

jlincecum 07-06-2013 10:48 AM

I was out 8 weeks with mine and it was still fairly sore and tough to use even after that. this is one of those injuries that you deal with for a very long time. I still cant completely straighten my arm and it lets me know its there from time to time. I did not have surgery but plenty of PT. on a side note the PT for this will let you know if you are as tough as you think you are

BROWN FIN 07-06-2013 01:21 PM

Pt sounds like fun. Got my next appointment is Monday afternoon. Kind of anxious to find out what I'm gonna be doing and get it over with.
