The swelling has gone but there is still a tight bulge at the rear of my forearm. I locked the brace at 10 degrees last night. It had been set with some play and a maximum extension of ten. I decided to mobilize it even more in hopes of stretching the muscles. I will ask my occupational therapist her opinion on it at tomorrow's session.
My "horns" sign looks better and the swelling is almost all gone in my fingers.

I am working with a physical and occupational therapist 5 times a week to rehab my right arm after elbow replacement surgery. My grip is very weak because I can not work on strength until week 4-6. Right now we are try to condition the muscles.
