I had planned to post a photo of the scar from the surgery I had on my elbow three weeks ago but I decided that it wasn't for the fair hearted, so instead here are the X-rays made two years ago before the first attempt, which wasn't entirely successful.  Being able to lift a camera without getting a sore elbow is definitely an advantage in my work as a photographer, so luckily the surgeon didn't need too much persuasion from me to have another go at fixing the problem, although of course it was always going to be a joint decision. Ouch.
