Olecranon Bursitris (popyes elbow)
« on: October 02, 2016, 09:39:42 PM »
Anyone ever had any experience with this? Banged my elbow slightly while carry a load on Sept. 7. Been out on the road doing some work for a company. After about a week it began hurting enough to wake me up. Few days later big knot on elbow and forearm swelled. Took another week for workers comp to approve a Dr. visit.

Antibiotics, sling and came home from PA. Another week waiting for w/c to approve a follow-up visit. Shot of steroids and steroid pack. Forearm has gone down and not really much pain but the knot on the elbow won't go down. Waiting on W/C to approve a MRI. No work for two weeks and need to either get back out on the road for this company or hit the woods and log some.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

I've had it. Mine wasn't infected so I didn't need antibiotics (and didn't have the pain). It wasn't really a problem, just slightly annoying. I didn't bother with any treatments and it went away on its own -- after about 6 months.
