What Happens After Elbow Surgery

Feeling discouraged after elbow surgery? If so, take heart. You’re not alone…

How Can I Help?

I had elbow surgery and lived through the healing journey!

On one hand, I’m glad you’re here and are looking for support after elbow surgery. That said, I’m so sorry you’ve injured your arm.

As someone who broke an elbow, underwent surgery and has traveled through elbow recovery, I can relate to how out of sorts you’re probably feeling.

Like you, I experienced the physical pain, mental frustration, and emotional overwhelm an elbow injury can cause.

Life can be super challenging with limited use of your arm. And, it becomes incredibly annoying when you need to ask for help (especially if you’re used to living independently).
