Hang in there. I did similar damage to mine and the scar is almost an exact replica. I did mine in Nov 12. (Post 47 on previous page)
I've got about 20 deg to go before the arm is straight and i can bend enough to hold a phone to me ear. Still working hard to get some strength back into it. The surgeon says im about 80% of the way to where im going to get.
Finally back on the bike now. Did a 60 mile road loop today

The damage.

The fixxy fix with 16 screws and two plates.

The aftermath.

Three and a half months ago I was racing around a friend's track and went down in a muddy corner. There were probably 20+ boys out there riding with me that day, but who was the one hot on my tail, following too closely to avoid running right over me? My husband. Yep, tore right over my arm on his KTM and snapped it like a twig.

It still doesn't bend much at all yet and I missed out on the whole ice riding season this year.

I'm in PT twice a week and I've gotten pretty darn crafty at doing things with one hand, but it better start flexing soon cuz dirt riding is just around the corner!
You think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an Amateur!
