Yes, Again

Operation Number Three on my right elbow has been scheduled for Thursday, August 16.

My CT scan shows that there indeed is still a bone fragment lodged in the joint (circled in the image); that's why the elbow keeps getting locked up. And this procedure will not be arthroscopic; it will involve a full incision, because the fragment can't be reached any other way.

Arrrghhh. But if left untreated, my pain will only get worse.

My left wrist still needs surgery too, but I'm waiting until next year for that. It's not as crucial; I have full use of the wrist. It just hurts after some periods of overuse.

Good luck with your surgery. It has to do the trick this time!
