This is a detailed account of my Tommy John surgery. I'm not a professional pitcher...just a baseball guy who has pitched ever since I could grab a baseball.
Read a first hand account of the surgery, rehab, frustrations, and successes as I make my journey back to baseball and ultimately back to the pitcher's mound.

Another tough night.
Last night was tough. It was another night where I got up in the middle of the night in pain and had to take a painkiller. I don't know why this keeps happening but it's the same pain as last time. It's that nasty fiery feeling that runs on the outside of my arm and goes from the elbow to the wrist. Maybe I overused it. I honestly have no idea why. Ice helps but it comes in at night and keeps me from sleeping.
This has been a frustrating one. Hopefully tomorrow's appointment clears all of this up. I will absolutely ask all of the questions.
I just keep thinking that getting the stitches out and getting this wrap off will relieve some of the pressure.
