|Claudine, I have a metal pin in my elbow and the doctor who did the surgery said that I might want to have it taken out in the future. He made it sound like a very light precedure, but I am leaving it in as long as I don't find out it needs to come out. I found breaking my elbow made me so worried for so long, but in reality, it was my first broken bone in 39 years. I would not worry about it right now and just focus on healing. Think of all the football players, pro skaters and all the other althetes that have broken many bones. They keep going and I am sure you will too. When you are ready, just go out and have fun and don't push it too hard. My elbow break was a total fluke. I used to never fall on my elbow. If you are going to worry, then you might as well worry about any other injury you could get with any other bone. Shit, you can worry about crossing the street. lol It's tough, but you will come back strong.
