Just back from the fracture clinic. There is no sign of any healing in the CT scan. So I am scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning at 8 am. The surgeon is going to try screwing the bits of elbow back together with a plate. It is day surgery, so I should be home again by evening.
He reviewed the x-rays from the first fall (on July 27) and saw evidence of a fracture then. ER doctor missed it at the time. Said it was just soft tissue damage.
Typing is slow and awkward, so likely won’t be posting much for a while. Three months is the estimate for recovery.
