Yeah exceptin' when you was about 6 "Superman" was still called Ye Olde Superbe Gentle Manne.Mudbug, what did the Drs think caused that? I know a lot of women deal with bone loss and osteoporosis. My wife gets something from time to time and her older sister is taking some very expensive pills to help her bones. If you have other bones that are getting thin you probably need to take it easy. No parachuting, etc. I jumped off the barn roof when I was about 6 with a towel around my neck. Thought I'd fly like Superman.....worked well too...for about a second. 1917
in 2010 I had the right elbow replaced. That followed four hip replacements a few years previous to that. I have three different types of Arthritis, RA being the worst.Mudbug, what did the Drs think caused that? 1917
I know darnod well that it didn't feel much like childs play while you were trying to recover. That a Knee?
I have almost the same issue facing me. A big wind storm last week bent my homemade HDTV antenna to about 45 degrees above the rotor. It has to come down, and getting on the roof is the only way to accomplish is.Got up on the roof and walked around with a backpack blower on....I was thinking about this thread, and watching my step. Perhaps 70 is too old to be up a ladder and on the roof. I survived this trip though. 1917
Stay of the roof Mudbug....I have good bones and am pretty spry....but, our balance isn't what is once was, nor eyesight, and I dang sure don't bounce as well. Take care of that arm.....there are some youngsters around that can fix the antenna. 1917I have almost the same issue facing me.

but it will be about two months before I feel safe enough to do that. Just have to stick to satellite TV and NetFlix, I guess.
That's really tough! My surgeon was concerned that something like that was going to happen to me, since he was putting n a LOT of equipment, and any one of them could have interfered with one of the many nerves that could cause complete immobility. I got real lucky. The arm feels pretty good, and PT is going good too. I can feel the arm's muscles regaining their strength.Hope you heal well.
My wife broke her right humerus. After surgery she didn't gain use of her right hand for 6 months.
Physical therapy wasn't helping for the first 6 months.
A second surgery was done to check if the radial nerve was being compressed.
After the 2nd surgery and many more months of P/T she gained partial use of her right hand.
It took over 2 yrs for her to get most of her mobility back and about 80% grip strength.
Now, years later arm is doing well but low on stamina. Arm and grip strength is OK but not 100%
