hi everyone thank you for your kind messages, colin and bsk, I have to wear a half cast on the elbow side of my arm for 5 weeks, and take the bandages off 3 times a day, so I can try and get the elbow working, but im in a lot of pain with it, this will sound mad, but it feel's like a realy bad toothache, its throbbing like mad, im taking 2 lots of pain killers, I guess in a few days I will feel better , when it all settles down xx

Oh God, Sue sounds soo painful and keeping the cast on for 5 weeks doesn't seem very comfortable at all. I'm really worried about getting mine done now as both my elbows hurt. Oh I really hope the pain subsides and you start to feel comfortable and start using the new joint.

Take care xx

Speedy recovery Sue, I hope your 5 weeks go quicky and your pain subsides soon.

They send everyone home so quickly now. Do you all think this is a good or bad thing?

Always better to be out of hospital than in. Less chance of infection.

hi emm,
im pleased I was home the next day, I think you pick up all sorts of germs in hospital, its 3 weeks now since the op, I'm still a little sore and the cast is off more than on as it drives me mad, but i have good movement now and healed up nicely
