Re: radial head fracture

I'm not a doctor - however 3 weeks ago i broke my radial head clean off and had it wired back together.. i had a cast for 2 weeks and now in fixed hinged brace for2 weeks before i start physio - i've been told that i may not get full flexion or rotation of my arm but there is still a chance - all i know is that i am in the arm brace for 3 months minimum - i also know a guy who did his a few years ago - he has full rotation but not flextion.. good luk
