I've had surgery on my olecranon fossu. . Th epost op is driving me crazy. I have to wear a sling, but worse, the skin on my forearm and neck itxhes, and the skin feels "hard". My doctor is extremely busy and I don't know if I'm getting enough attention, not to sound like a wuss.
I have had a history of metal allergies ( jewelry related) but it never occured to me when they asked for "allergies- pre-op" that that might be a problem. My skin feels extremely dry, and i can't stand the Ace bandage. I'm only ten days out of surgery, it hurts like heck, and I'm not suremwhatbquestions I should ask, or what is normal. My skin also feels hard.
Any ideas for post op attention. i'm new to all of this.View Thread
