Im a Level 7 gymnast and back in October I was training a vault and dislocated my elbow. I was recently released to do gymnastics only to find out that my physical therapist wasnted an MRI(might I add my arm was no where near straight) the MRI was on las thursday and needless to say there was still a lot wrong with it and The doc where I had them done told me I should not be doing gymnastics. my mom, physical therapist, and I have been trying ti get this MRI for 6 weeks as we all knew there was still somthing wrong with it. Even my coach could tell. I had just started to do backhandsprings and backwalkovers on beam. So I went to the doctor yesterday to find out he never opened the MRI and tld me the same thing that the people where I got it done at said which was that there is a bruised bone, there is fluid in the jointa pretty major muscle tear, and a possible tear in the ligament but wouldnt say anything more and then told me it would bein better intrest to go to a different doctor because I was a gymnast and he doesn't do surgerys unless it is to fix a broken bone. So now I have to go to a elbow specialist to find out if I need surgery or not, and I might have to get surgery (whats known asTommy John surgery in baseball) and that would takeme out another year. Im soo worried about what the results are going to be and has anyone else had this kind of problem with a doctor? he was an Orthopedic in Sports medicine so we thought he would be good. But I think I should of had an MRI way before now anyone else agree or have any advice for me?
