    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Therapy is dam killing me. I feel like a total newb. I push myself so hard by the time therapy/rehab is over. My arm is shaking so bad.. Lol.

    So we have added many more exercises.

    Everything is 3-5sec hold x2sets

    Side lying external rotation with 3lb weight.

    Hold for 5 sec repeat 20 reps x 2sets

    Low rows with bands

    Hold a band between both hands palm up in front of me , elbows at my sides. Pull outward to the sides with both hands Keeping elbows down at my side. 20 x 2sets

    Standing with bands.

    Elbows down to the side , hand in front of me i perform and external rotation 20 reps x2

    Followed by internal rotation with band.

    20rep x 2

    Tricep extension 2 sets black bands

    5 sec down , hold for 3 sec,...slowly retract 5 sec to starting position

    Wall presses w/ towel. Forward and side.

    These kill me.im so spent when doing these.

    It takes everything i have to push up the wall.

    I can get about 3/4 with elbow in front of my body. I cannot yet rotate my arm enough to do a proper pressing motion. Cannot get the elbow/ arm to the side of my body and hand upward as if im doing a press. It will take some time.

    Bench press (lol)

    Laying on my back i have a pvc 1"pipe with an ankle weight wrapped around it.

    I do 25 or more presses...very slowly down and up count to about 7 each way.

    Laying on my stomach on the table with my right arm hanging off the side i do a

    one arm row

    Reverse fly /Read delt raise

    Then keeping my arm in a straightened position hanging off the table i raise my arm to my butt.. Behind me without causing pain.

    Plus all my normal exercises and stim. Finish with ice.. Done in about 2 hrs

    See the ortho Wednesday.

    More physical and strenuous Stretching should be in the works. Also, im pushing for my cardio jogging/running and see about pushups. Evennif she will allow them from my knees i will take it.. Better than nothing.

    Will update after my app.

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Been a long day with the dr.

    Saw the ortho today. She said im very tight. (Tendons).

    She said the tear was pretty severe she is not surprised.

    Gonna add in overhead pulleys. To help with range of motion and stretching the tendons.

    Work Restrictions are the same. Nothing has changed for now.

    So dont know what work will do or how they will react. Had to send everything to my lawyer and work. I am to continue therapy 2x a week. See her again in 8 weeks.

    She said closer to 6 month range for better range of motion better flexability.. /

    Im able to jog /run. Do cardio. I was told do not push the arm past the point of exhaustion.

    Even discussed my trt and referred me to a dr. In house.

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Was in the process of buying a home before this surgery. So i cannot let this mess that up.
    Today went to therapy. I am pretty dam sore.
    Added in over head pulleys.
    1. like doing delt raises, except using my left arm as the weight adding pressure to raise the right arm above the head in a delt raise. Hold for 5 sec.
    2. Like a shoulder press. Using the left arm again as the weight and pulling and stretching out the right arm into a shoulder press motion. Hold for 5 sec.
    Elbow isnt fully to the side while doing this but much farther then it has been.
    This also helps rotating the arm/hand upward while my elbow is out toward the side.
    3. One arm tricep ext. While holding a towel behind my back. The left hand is doing the extension upward above the head. While the right hand is holding onto the towel (trying to get motion going backward).
    The goal is to be able to take the right arm and bend it behind your back. Hand aboit midway up your back..
    Presently i cannot get my right hand even behind my butt cheek.. It sucks badly...
    This was the worse of the three .. Painful is an understatement.
    Therapist Did a lot more physical stretching me out and pushing my limits to the side and beyond my head... Im obliterated... Totally wiped out.
    Will do foam rolling tonight and throughout the weekend to keep loose and also use a tennis ball behind and around my scapula.

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Check This out!!!
    My therapist told me the nurse for work comp called her.

    said she was surprised and caught off guard. My therapist also said she (nurse )was rude and made it out that my ortho was mad..And she ( the nurse) wanted to get me back in and seen by someone else to change my restrictions that my orthp put in place.

    Is this even allowed.

    How can the nurse for wc try and have someone else change what my surgeon has instructed after she saw me and reevaluated me.

    Some crooked and under handed people..

    Yea i think so. Think they just wanna get me back on light duty 40hrs. No overtime. They dont care about me or whats really wrong with me. They will then put me on my job during the week but eliminate my weekend work and give it other people. Which will drop my pay a few more hundred a week.
    Im already not getting paid properly. My pay avg was about 576 higher weekly from 2018. 2019 i only worked up til surgery feb 7th. But made over 12k. So it was even more if you compare 2018 and 2019.
    Even for Just over a month.
    Im getting paid from yr2017 i made 30k less. Than 2018.
    My job/position works pretty much every weekend. May be off on a saturday once a month.
    So now i think they just wanna try to eliminate my workers comp pay.

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Went on a family vacation for a week.
    Nurse even called me twice on vacation.
    Next she called my therapist boss to try and get her in trouble.
    Since ive been back we changed up a bunch exercises.
    Added foam roller straight up and down the center of my back. I roll on it from left clavical tonright clavical.
    Also on the foam roaller we do a (pec )flyes no weights. 2 sets
    Also on foam roller we do an OH stretch try and touch the ground and then bring hands back to my chest.
    All exercises have increased in weight.
    Black bands on all exercises that i use bands.
    While doing tricep ext/kickbacks. The right side/band snapped...lol i apologized. They said they have more.. I waited to do triceps last. Didn't want to wear down the bicep and shoulder.
    Curls im on 7lbs. Will ask for 10lbs next week. They had me on 5lbs. Talked em up to 7lbs. Hope this iant the max lbs they have.
    My range of motion has increased a lot. I can now get deodorant on both arms without using the wall or only my left hand for both sides.
    Gonna start back up on my bpc157. See the ortho again on the 3rd of july. So i wanna press things a little now. I believe now the anchor in the shoulder for the bicep is stable and shouldnt come out. Now its all about getting range of motion back and strength. Still cant wipe my ass with my right hand.
    Need to get the backward range of motion back. Cant bring my right hand up behind my back at all. I can only get to mid ass cheek.. Lol
    Also, still cant rotate my arm into a shoulder press position.
    Getting better, but a very slow process.

    Forgot to mention ive started doing wall pushups.. At therapy

    1.Regular hand spread
    2.Military hand placement
    3.Diamonds
    3 sets of each she said 10
    So i did 15
    So i did these like a superset 1/2/3 30 sec break. Repeat. Repeat again.

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Monday began a new regimen.

    I believe this is what i truly need.

    I will be back in the gym 5 days a week.

    Cardio will be everyday.

    Gonna have to start super light with right bicep

    And pulling exercises.

    Gonna try and use the pec deck for stretching and getting back my range of motion.
