I broke my distal / lower humerus on Aug 8th and self healing since. elbow too stiff to bend, how long will I be like this?
I had a cement cast for for 1month which did not allow any gravitational pull on my bones for 2 weeks, then a cement cast for 2 weeks then a plastic brace. I can't straighten my arm and my elbowI broke my arm at the distal humerus, lower forearm, on Aug 8th. I didn't have insurance and surgery was too expensive so I was forced is always sore. it mostly hurts in the antecubital (front of elbow) area and also there's a bone on the lateral side of my elbow that hurts deal bad, as if it was bruised. the doctor said I could take my brace off to shower but I've been deathly afraid of doing so. maybe this pain I'm feeling is in my head, the doctor did mention that too.
