Hi. I have had an elbow surgery 4 months ago. I have been taking good amount of calcium supplements everyday. Do I still need to continue taking them? The rods and plates in my elbow will be removed after 2 years. So do I have to keep taking milk and other calcium foods till the removal of implants?

You should consult Physiotherapist for getting back all your elbow movements and solving your problems. The calcium has already done it's work.
