Had my first elbow operation 2012 after locking and grinding. Cleaned and bone growth taken off. NHS Consultant explained all smooth cartelidge surfaces have worn down with arthritis. At 51 it hasn’t been recommended by the NHS or Now a Private Consultant to have a full elbow replacement. It’s neen suggested by Consultants that the prosthetic elbow joint would only be suitable for older people (no offence) but they’d what the Consultants said. I think they are wrong and I would benifit as I have excellent muscle and tendons, by doing this at my age would help with sever pain and restricted movement. It’s got that sever that the radial head dislocated and elbow completely locked up.
My question to anyone out there that can help that has had a full elbow surgery, radial, ulnar, humerus and how has it worked out? What ages ?
