Olecranon Fracture: Part Seven

A very short update on things. It's been exactly a month since my last physio appointment. Time has flown by. I've been doing my exercises twice a day, morning and night, and hate them. But - there's improvement. I'll keep doing them, as the physio said, until I feel things have levelled out. 

So, the flexibility. Once I've stretched, I can touch my shoulder. I'm still about an inch or two away if I try cold. I can fully straighten my arm against a wall - using my knee to push my elbow out. Hopefully the photos will give you an idea of what I mean. If I'm not pushing, there's still a good couple of inches of air. But as I can push it straight with relatively little pain, I'm hoping that one day - once my muscle is back - I'll be able to pull it straight myself. 

All in all - it's good. I'll report back in another month!

Touching my shoulder for the first time since October 19th. The joy!
