im 19 and I've had this, well, since i was born obviously. my left arm was turned 90 degrees inward by the time i was 16 so that mad it pretty hard on me, exspecialy in high school. but the right arm wasnt as bad as my left, any way, i had surgeey on my left arm when i was 18 by the shriners hospital in chicago, they went in and broke my fore arm where it was fused, twisted it to the proper position and put a titanium rod in between my bones and stuck me in a cast for 4 months. it was so different relearning everything once the cast was off. i still cant rotate my arm palm up but its alot better than before... im kinda glad i found this site, ive never met anybody with the same condition in person or even talked to anybody with the same condition. to be honest its really relieving, i dont feel so much alone with my condition any more, thanks zachView Thread
