Hi again,despite all best efforts by PT and myself I am still at about 80° almost 6 months since accident.PT thinks it is scar tissue that is stopping my ROM and causing pain.I have been referred back to my OS with a view to removing scar tissue or manipulation under anaesthesia.Has anyone else had this procedure and what was the outcome.
I am a bit anxious about surgery but hopefully this will allow me to progress more quickly and let me get my life back.I think the scar tissue problem is the result of being in a full cast for 6 weeks then a hinged cast for 6 weeks and only starting g physiotherapy at 12 weeks.Any thoughts or information on my situation will be greatly appreciated. My PT is very encouraging but it would be great to hear from anyone who has experienced a similar situation.
Very best wishes to all in your recovery.
