Elbow Update…

Just been to see the surgeon for my 7 day checkup. He’s really happy/surprised by the recovery so far.

  • Grip Strength: My grip strength is almost normal now. He was expecting it to take up to 6 months.
  • Pain: Apart from the day after, I’ve had almost no pain. I’ve only used the pain killers when the itching of my eczema under the bandage has been bad. πŸ™‚
  • Stitches: The cut itself looked so good he sorted out the stitches a few days early to save me having to get it done at the GP. He put some paper stitches as a precaution, which I can take off in a few days.
  • Range of Motion: He expected me to have some limited range of motion for a few weeks, but I have full ROM.

It seems my true skill in life is healing. I’m like a crappy version of Wolverine, without the claws. πŸ™‚

The only downside is the scar looks so clean I’m going to struggle to convince people it was a shark attack. πŸ™‚

Cheers

  2. Dear Tim,

    Glad to hear you are recovering! Hopefully next time we meet, you will not be grimacing in pain. Peru and Chile for CLOUG II will be a lot of fun!

    Cheers,
