Loooong sigh.......don't know whether to be elated or depressed. The surgeon ok'd me going back to work. Four months off from work, and the gym, have had some good and bad affects on me. Good - no work for four months. Bad - I start tomorrow and am literally being thrown to the wolves, more or less. Four months off work is a long time. There have been a lot of changes and I'm expected to hit the floor running. I would have liked to have had at least an... Go to BodyBlog

I may have mentioned some time ago that with my concerns, coupled with the surgeon's, I have not worked since mid-February.

So for at least this upcoming week the PT will probably continue to focus on stretching before adding in weight. Can't wait to get back in the... Go to BodyBlog
Been off work now for a while for this frozen shoulder. I feel bad, almost guilty about that. But everyday, while going through normal everyday activities, I inevitably am reminded of my shoulder with a brain searing jolt of pain, temporarily relieving me of my guilt. I'm still able to get in some workouts, specifically legs and some light close grip back work. I did a lot of reading on this condition and it can sometimes take 2-3 years to get full...
