Elbow update

I haven't posted about my elbow for a while. I guess it's about as healed as it's going to get. It does (as you might guess) ache a little after a particularly rigorous karate class (especially on the days when I'm punching an actual bag as opposed to the air, although even those air punches can leave me sore if I extend my arm too much or throw them too hard).

I am not, however, totally back to normal, and I don't think I ever will be. My arm now locks up when I try to move it from bent to straight (it often happens after I brush my teeth, for example, when I go to rinse out the toothbrush). It's fine once I force it the rest of the way, and it doesn't hurt or anything--it just kind of freezes in place before it's totally extended. And I'm still building the strength back up in that arm (not that I was particularly strong to begin with, LOL). But otherwise, I think I'm good to go. =-)

well my left leg will never be the same either if it makes you feel any better.
