Because i know what can happen when it goes wrong... A $35,000 arm, 9 screws, a plate, 43 staples, a month and a half in a cast, a month and a half of therapy, and a 50% chance of having NO use of your arm at all...thankfully i have 99% of the original motion, and 90% of the original strength... But i never want to find myself in that situaton ever again.....
