Living Abroad We Can Often Afford Servants
You have guts Andy... even from here looking at that arm was not easy.
The cotton was to protect the skin at your elbow from the tensor bandage, and it keeps the bandage clean.
I hope you have it elevated or whatever the instructions are. the arm is probably similar.
A friend of mine with a broken leg had it swell up and blood pooled in it, then clotted, a bad situation thats what the tensor bandage is there to prevent... In those days they used casts, no anti swelling measures.
Today Waleska got T boned on her scooter, she had a passenger on the back, who screamed so she grabbed a handful of throttle by instinct and when the guy hit her.. it jerked his front wheel to the side, that stopped his forward movement.
Waleska is unscathed didnt even fall over, scooter just has a scratch... the bike that hit her is destroyed from all the tumbling down the road...he was moving very fast.... it was the closest of close calls.

Andy, just thought of an idea as you were talking about getting a US review of your injuries. If you get x-rays done in the DR (much cheaper than the US I assume) email them to me. I have a friend 2 minutes walk from me that is a retired radiologist. He and his brother owned their own radiology business for many years. He is very good and earlier this year recertified his boards just because he likes to stay up to date even though he is retired.
Steve it sounds really good. after about 21 days of healing I'm going to try to get an x-ray, Sneaky doctor left some kind of wire in there that would ensure that I have to pay him for a small surgery, but I believe it could be in there for years. When somebody gives me the right price I'll pay to have it removed. They are really sneaky here. yet I think I can go to a clinic and send it to Send it to you to have it red or something at least I would have a competent person. That doesn't have any benefit of expanding the the job.
Thank you Andy Graham your friend Gadget
I am sure they can give it to you on a CD or put it on your USB drive, then you can email or dropbox it to me so he has a higher resolution version to look at than what you can post on the wall like your original xrays.
