Re: 18 Month Old TBPI

(Please bare with me, I am still not very familiar with the terminology for all of this!) - You are doing great! Dr. Solomon suggests physical therapy twice a week for the next 3 months. He said at that point if there is no progress, we can discuss other options. I really don't agree with this, mean...

Re: Possible Nerve Graft Surgery Friday 2/27: Then what?

Hi Rich, I hope the surgery went well and you have a better idea of the damage and what is possible going forward. The question of recovery really depends on the surgery and what was moved around. I suggest get back doing "life" again as quickly as possible, if you were athletic, get back to the spo...

Re: No doctors help and Despaire????

Tom, thanks for your suggestion earlier. I have since left a message for my doctor to call me back. (Twice) in order to get a referral to a bpi specialist. I haven't heard back in 2 days.

Re: Amusement Park Troubles

Hi Zeb, If you are still in the LA area, let's grab lunch. As far as rides, I have never had an issue, I also haven't tried wearing my sling. I just get in and let er rip. Thinking about the issue you faced, I am sure they are responding out of prior issues with people with casts or some form of a s...

Re: 24 Hours of Lemons

Hi Brian, Looks pretty fun and funny. You could totally do an entire theme on the one arm thing. How often do they do these races and what part of the country? There are a few brachial plexus FaceBook group, including one for UBPN. You might want to post there as well as search out some arm amputee ...
