Last December I took a spill off my bike and broke my elbow and fractured my arm. I was close to UCLA emergency so I walked over with my bike in tow. They took an X-ray to confirm that was in fact is what had happened. Because of the swelling and a planned trip to Colorado for christmas with my son the next week, we decide not to operate and reattach the elbow to the fractured arm until the first of january. The procedure was to wire the elbow to the forearm to hold it in place. By the time of the operation, three weeks later, an x-ray revealed that the forearm fracture was almost completely healed.
Surprise, surprise nature doing it's thing. Eight weeks after the accident I was playing tennis, running and lifting weights. I had imagined at least five months of recovery before getting back to my usual routine. My orthopedic surgeon was the most surprised attributing the fast recovery to my healthy condition. He said that the weight training and aerobic exercises that I have doing all my life attributed greatly to my fast recovery.
Keep it Simple, Consistent and Fun.
