According to Paletta and Weinberg, Chris responded better than expected to the surgery.  The swelling went down, the range of motion returned and there was no soreness quicker than the expected.

He is currently, according to them, 2 weeks ahead of schedule.  He is going to begin a strong workout program and be re-evaluated in 2 weeks to see where he stands.

I'm not sure what the original timetable was and I'm not sure what exactly they did to Carpenter.  If they didn't do anything to the tendons or muscles while they were in there, minimized the damage while removing the spurs, I would think that he is merely on a strength building routine to get that arm back into shape.

With this kind of surgery, do you have to worry about pushing a guy too hard other than swelling?  I mean, the damage was loose bone in his elbow, correct?  

I just want to make sure they aren't going to screw this one up too.
