    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.
    Thanks.

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

    Man, that sucks. Stupid inertia. Hope you get back on the trainer soon and have a speedy recovery.

    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
