  • Total Elbow Replacement - I have had this done. Anyone else?

    In June 2014 I had my left elbow replaced.  At the present time this is 9 weeks ago. I have had good progress but concerned about doing anything that will make it come loose. Has anyone else had the same operation and how has it been and has there been any problem with the joint coming loose?
