got the cast off today and the staples removed.
They were suprised at how well it looked.
The outside is healing nicely and the xrays didnt show any problems.
Its rather painfull and stiff which the doc says he expected.
start pt on tuesday for 4 weeks of stretching then 2-4 weeks of strenth training following.
Right now I can open my arm about 1/2 way which is slightly more than the cast was set at.
ie bout like this _|
no lifting or twisting and only the mildest of stretching until tue.

Great news, Strm!!!!


Why is there a week''s wait to have PT?

Btw, I haven''t seen a post where you commented on the "comfy factor" of your new chair. Did I miss that one?

Glad to hear the doctors are pleased with the healing that is happening and its progress! The PT will be tough but regaining full range of motion is the important thing. You''re doing great!!

I want a specific therapist who I worked with in the past and she only works 3 days a week and needed a hour exclusive appointment for an evaul and that was the first time she had that large a hole in her schedule.
Usualy for a hour apt 30 min is shared.
IE. does wound care and massage and what not for 30 min then sets you up to do exercises for 30 min while she does wound care and what not with someone else.
Then a 5 min review and what not for the next week for a total of 65min or so.

My tyical appointment often ran 1.5 hours with 1 hour on the machines and 30 min massage.

I wouldnt have got thru the last week without that chair there is no place else I can sleep.
Its one of the best gifts ever! :}
