Has anyone else out there had this sort of bone injury? I fell off my mountainbike in mid February and broke my elbow which has been pinned and wired since then. Every time I go to the fracture clinic I get a different doctor - so I get different feedback as to: a) whether it is healing; b) whether I should be lifting small weights (eg cans of baked beans to try and get the triceps muscles working again and c) when the pins and wires might be removed. My elbow has been very sore this week and I have my doubts as to whether it is actually set or healing properly so am thinking of getting a second opinion. If anyone has had this type of injury and can give me some feedback, it would be very much appreciated.
