Elbow09 Update 3

Elbow 09This morning, we went back to Shock Trauma for Holly's post-op follow-up appointment. After getting some x-rays, we were seen by the doctors. There really isn't too much exciting to tell with this report. The doctors were very happy with her progress. The x-rays looked great and her motion looked good. She's going to be able to extend her arm an additional 15 degrees each week (to 45 degrees this week).

Holly starts physical therapy as soon as possible (next Wednesday). She won't be able to do any strengthening for 6 weeks and no weight bearing for 2 more weeks after that. And, much to Holly's dismay, she can't have Advil until week 6 either. :(
