It has been 4 months since I dislocated my elbow,


Q: It has been 4 months since I dislocated my elbow, fractured my radial head, and sprained my wrist from falling off a horse while out of town Christmas day. I didn't go to the hospital for 5days I thought I just jammed it and was in pain due to my Fibromyalgia but when it wasn't getting any better and had developed a black bruise on the back side I knew I had to go get it checked out. At the first hospital they did X-ray's and a physical exam then did an elbow reduction followed by more X-rays sent in a hard molded splint and then told me that I had to be sent to a level 1 trama center for surgery since there was a piece of bone or cartalige blocking the joint from being completely reduced and they didn't have a Ortho Dr that handles elbows. after a ambulance ride to another hospital the simply did more X-rays through the splint came back and said it was blood clot and sent me home. without even ever touching me. Told me to keep it in the split for 6 to 8 weeks and then therapy. Well now I cannot extended my elbow it's as if it is just stuck it just won't go I also have now have intense muscle spasms and pain in my bicep and shoulder. I feel as though the 2nd Dr just didn't want to deal with it since it was a holiday (New Year Eve Morning)
