elbow dislocation - July 29, 2016 3:20:29 AM

Hi all, my dad has an elbow dislocation in 2011 (right elbow). An implant was done at that time because his radial head was shattered. He was doing perfectly fine except the aging problems and dementia, but now he is getting pain in that area. He never told anything about that to us and he told this to his new home nurse whom I appointed 3 weeks ago from Prestige care ( ). The orthopedic surgeon is recommending to remove the implant now. What the doctor says is that my dad has post-traumatic arthritis and the implant has shifted and rubbed up against the joint which causes further arthritis changes. Have any of you experienced this? I am feeling ashamed of asking my dad in detail about this. I forgot to take proper care of him in my busy schedule and that’s why I appointed a nurse for him, and I think he told this to her as he felt comfortable with the nursing care. Feeling ashamed of myself for being as an irresponsible daughter all these days. Can anyone suggest me some solutions for my dad’s problem? It would be great if you share your experiences regarding this.
