HELP! - Post Surgery Questions
Hey peeps, I need your help. I have lateral & sublateral epicondylitus with a bone spur on my right elbow - basically I have "tennis/golfers/computer" elbow and I am scheduled for surgery (not orthroscopic) on Thursday, Dec. 7th. The surgeon will be going in to shave down the bone and fix the tendons but that is about all I know until they get in there and see the extent of the injury.
I don't know anyone who has had this surgery and I'm not sure what to expect - my brother who had surgery on his rotator cuff (shoulder) has told me horror stories about the pain and rehab and now I'm freaked.
This is where I need your help.
Has anyone had the surgery for "tennis elbow"? How long were you in pain after? How long before you could use your arm for the basics? How long until you were back to normal activities? What did you do for rehab? Any info you can give me is very much appreicated.
Thanks in advance for your help!
