    Hillary Clinton fractures elbow in fall - Yahoo! News

    This is not good. She is no young spring chicken, broken bones are serious stuff and this is worse then just a bone.

    I hope the surgery works and she recovers full functionality.

    Do me a favor all, keep politics and partisanship out of this thread.

    Okay.... You want no politics or partisanship? She isn't that much older than I, and I had a 90% rotator cuff tear and bone spurs in the shoulder 2 years ago that, obviously, required surgery, and then PT. Six weeks was how long I was out of work. How much time you think this broken elbow recovery should take?

    Gonna be difficult since she has a very busy schedule. She is gonna need physical therapy most likely and not gonna be able to find enough time. And older women tend to have bone problems if they are not careful with diet and such.

    She can keep it in a sling and do her job but she is gonna need to make time for therapy and doctor visits. She probably is not a happy camper.

    Well no kiddin' on the "bone problems". Seems it has something to do with a loss of calcium IF you don't remember to supplement that. Now given that she an infinitely more demanding schedule than I did, I'm sure she isn't "happy", but you gotta put in the time if you expect a full recovery. So.... How much time do you think this broken elbow recovery should take? Or in other words, should she put the demanding schedule on hold long enough to recover, and if so, would a broken elbow surgery take longer than the surgery described above?

    I don't even 'play' a doctor, but a 'shattered' bone doesn't sound good, especially in someone above the age of puberty. I'm sure she'll have the best surgeons and such. Once she's out of 'pain' they can have the PT go with her and fit the therapy in would be my guess.

    Ya they will give her someone to do the PT and try to schedule it around her other things going on. I suspect it will take longer then say if you or I had it happen. I seriously doubt she is gonna stop working.
