The torn tendon in my elbow was fixed yesterday.
This was the last surgical step in rebuilding the catastrophe called “my arm.”
I’m not going to lie, this was not a fun procedure to go through.
(That’s “polite speak” for saying – it hurt/s like hell!)
My doctor informed me the tear was bigger than expected.
The MRI showed a “moderate” sized tear and I guess it was just plain “big.”
I suppose that explains why it has interfered so much with my life.
Anyway, my doc felt like it was a very successful procedure.
He expects I’ll experience a good result once I get through the healing process.
Personally, all I know is that it’s very painful right now.
(What is it about elbows? Nerve sensitivity?)
Today, I intend to just rest, ice my arm, and nap as pain meds allow.
My arm is immobilized in a splint/brace/thingy.
I feel like this whole thing is a step backwarrd.
But, I know doing this now –
While I’m recovering from a major shoulder rebuild,
Is truly the right thing to do.
And now, if you’ll excuse me,
I’m off to take a nap!
