Elbow update…

September 15th, 2006 · 3 Comments

The doctor reviewed the films from the MRI with me this morning. The good news is that there’s no tearing of any tendons or ligaments in the elbow, nor is there any indication of any degenerative condition. All that’s there are three really upset tendons that are all inflamed significantly.

The doctor gave me several cortisone/steroid injections. I don’t know exactly how many, as I wasn’t watching. But he hopes that the medicine will calm the inflamtion down enough to make me relatively pain-free within about 48 to 72 hours. I’m still off work until we see what the shots do for me. I have a follow-up appointment on Monday morning.

A shiny new $1 bill to anyone who can tell me what that clip is from.

    Are you getting physical therapy? While injections and anti-inflamatory medications can help reduce the discomfort, I found the only long-term solution to my medial epicondylitis was to do specialized exercises on a regular basis. Eccentric strength training did wonders for me.

    Hope you got some relief from the injections

    I had been, but the doctor discontinued it temporarily. I’m not sure why. I meet with him again on Monday and I was going to ask him about it then.

    The elbow feels MUCH better this morning than it has in the last six weeks.

    Hehe, that video clip is from the “Air France with 737PMDG NG” Flight Simulator video. It is made by Daum Studios:
