Why won't my elbow bend of flex to its maximum, how long before I can bend it fully.

Posted by scotsman

I suffered a fractured radial head of the left elbow in addition the ulna was shattered in multiple pieces.

During surgery a plate was installed on the ulna along with muliple screws.

the radial head was also screwed back on witha screw.

I have been doing physical therapy for about 2 weeks and I can only flex or move my elbow from my side to about waist level.It feels as if the elbow is glued shut.
