I'm no doctor, but I think the little ball part is supposed to be in the little socket part.

How'd you do it?

Essentially. They gave me some hardcore drugs. They found a balance of two IV drugs which made me super relaxed, the 3rd brought me out of it. I honestly dont remember much of it. Of course this was after 7 hours of triage, ambulance transports, multiple hospitals and ER's...fun times.

Now I am sitting here in a soft cast. CT scan tomorrow. Then off to the ortho somewhere. Surgery to follow I am guessing. But elbow does not look like the xray anymore.

Kai- You can finish the song. Just stutter a bit through the arm part till I find out more.

Morphine's the weirdest feeling drug.

I just felt an eerie cool feeling as the drug entered my veins. Then I felt a shudder and before I knew it, my entire body felt like that initial entry.

Hello,

That makes me pucker just thinking about it -- the x-ray, well, I only need to see it once.

Best of luck with your recovery. Hope it is rapid.

It looks like a dislocation but Im guessing there is something alot more serious going on there than just that.

Couldnt be a better time for that to happen (not that any time is good). You will be back on the trainer in a few weeks and on the road in 5 to 8. Been there done that with the elbow

Good luck and enjoy the pain meds

well... might need surgery. I have some bone floating around in there but not a lot, pretty clean dislocation. To much swelling to tell much of anything. I think I will go for a second opinion tomorrow.

choice #1- do nothing and leave the bone fragments
#2- remove the bone fragments
#3- screw bone back into place
