    MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Ok been off the site the last week or so.
    I want to apologize for my lack of presence.
    Had my surgery last friday.
    Been crazy since.
    They Gave me a Nerve block before the surgery. Guided a needle into the nerve in my neck. I was able to watch on a screen in front of me. It made it so i could not move or feel my right shoulder or arm at all. Felt very weird. Also causes some forgetfulness. Keep asking the same stuff over and over..smh.
    Repaired the labrum, rotator and reattached my bicep tendon. Who knew i damaged so much ....they did some other work as well but i dont remember the exact info..
    Had some issues after with o2 until they could get my saturation level back up.
    Then early Monday morning had a scare my leg ,ankle and foot swelled pretty bad. Had to rush to get a sonogram. No clots thank goodness.
    Everything is good. Not sure why my leg swelled so bad. Still have swelling but not as bad.
    Im in a sling and an immobilizer. So that i dont move my arm /shoulder. This is my right arm so bare with me. Im right handed. Everything is much harder. Especially since my arm is stuck in this position with this block strapped around my upper abdomen to the side and my sling is velcroed to the block and hangs around my neck. sleep sucks, moving Sucks. Im in pain.(to be expected)
    I see the doc within 2 weeks.
    The plan.
    I have a good stash of PSL tb 500 that i will incorporate into my recovery. I will log my progress and details. Also will be getting some PSL bpc157.
    Sorry i havent been on as much the last week and a half. This is why.
    So stay tuned for details.
    Until i see my doc things will be slow. But i wanted to get a jump on This log.

    Re: MD24 recovery log.back from the dead

    Those two will really help you! They helped me a lot when I was recovering from my spinal surgery. The to PSL peptides you are taking aren't legit, they really really helped me.

    Make sure not to rush anything and to listen to everything from your doctors. That was hard thing for me to do as I was limited to lifting only 5 lb for quite some time.

    Just remember, wow this journey of ours is erase it is actually a marathon and not a Sprint. You'll have plenty of time to make up lost gains and to achieve new ones if you don't permanently damage yourself by starting to soon.

    Healing thoughts are being sent your way.

    Re: MD24 recovery log.back from the dead

    Glad to hear that you are doing better.
    I've got a couple surgeries myself coming up.

    Have to get both of the "Great Saphenous Veins" in both Thighs done.

    Radio Frequency Ablation ~ basically a Needle that Heats-up and Cauterizes the Vein.
    Should only keep me off my feet a couple of days at most.... JP
    P.S.
    The Veins got all Twisted from being Varicose.

    Things to look forward to after your 60's (lol).

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    A little better last 2 days. Taking very hot showers. I place rag over the shoulder while i shower creating constant moist heat. Allowing the shower water to hit my shoulder alao at times in different areas. Feels similar to ems. Then im able to get a better stretch and a better range on the upward curling motion. I had been stuck at about 2-3". I believe im almost half way on the curl now.
    Tomorrow i go back to my original therapist office. So let see what they do and say. Will update from there hopefully with some pics of equipement and such. Appointment isn't until 3. I will do more cardio(lol) walking in the am. Gonna be going to 2 a days on the treadmill and hopefully gym in the am for legs .

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ok had therapy today.. Absolutely awesome. So glad i switched! Went thru everything... injury, how it happened, surgery, post op, even my last therapy appointment..
    Did measurements on left arm for upward range of motion(fully curled position) and then again in a fully extended postion with my arm down at my side.
    Refer to post #37 i believe for instructions and therapy.
    Today was great. I experienced some pain and tightness at first. Next thing i knew i was on my back laying on the table and i was being manipulated.
    Seriously she was great. Extending the arm nd increasing motion toward the front was surprising.
    Then she worked the arm and extension/flexion toward the side. Painful at first then i could feel more of the stretch and almost no pain.
    Then she worked on my neck and shoulder/delt . massaging and stretching the muscles... Felt amazing..
    After i performed
    scapular retractions
    Repeat 10x hold for 5 sec.
    2 sets will perform twice daily

    Upper trap stretch
    Repeat 1x hold 30 sec
    2 sets 2x ed

    Pendulum circles
    2 sets each direction 1x ed

    Ball squeeze
    Repeat 10x , hold 5 sec
    3 sets 3 x ed

    Wrist supination stretch
    Repeat 1x. Hold 30sec
    2 sets 2x ed

    Wrist flexor stretch
    1x hold 30 sec
    2 sets 2x ed.
    This was my day at therapy..
    Will be taking bpc shortly. Update with pic soon.
    Now i dont want to jump the gun but... There is a huge difference from the last 2 days and todays range of motion.
    Today is day 2 of bpc.

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Sorry this was yesterday ,day 3. For Protocol purposes since that is when i began the combo. Finished off 25 minutes of treadmill before i was told it is to late, to much noise.etc.... Blah blah blah..
    Did some squats and lunges..

    I need to start driving. The sooner the better! Then i can hit the gym every dam night for cardio, or legs, stretching etc.
    1ml tb500/ 500mcg bpc 157 Some better overall function with my right arm.
    I actually was able to use it eating my dinner . This makes me very happy and excited.

    Arm is still deformed looking. Upper bicep is bigger(very swollen) and no lower bicep.
    Ihave my appointment tomorrow for therapy. Im really looking forward to seeing how much mobility and range of motion ive improved since yesterday!...?????? And since starting this protocol. I feel this has really begun helping tremendously! Used the cryo ice therapy. Tonight. Will be using this a few times a day to see if this will help with some of this swelling.
    Off to take some red bali caps and hopefully off to bed. Update in the morning.
    Also Had 1 scoop of some ON protein(flavor) cookies and cream.

    Day 4 protocol
    Ok. Had therapy today. Added some exercises. I was a little stiff at first. A little sore but ..it didnt last long. My range of motion has increased so much in 3 days. My arm is almoat at full extension down at my side with very little bend. I was doing full straightening of the arm and stretching pulling/flexing the fingers backward. Then followed by flexing/stretching forearm .
    Again...she had me laying on my back with my arm between her arms and hands keep arm fully extended and working on raising my arm to a 90 degree angle. Front of shoulder was painful. Not nearly like the first time. She would work on this amd massaging the shoulder and next thing i new...BAM my arm was gliding up and down freely almost pain free.. She was surprised. And made a comment about it how on only the second time my arm was gliding and moving very well.
    We then proceeded to work the arm straight out to the side, in a fully extended position. Again I experienced some pain and tightness like a rubber band. She worked the shoulder and messaged the shoulder. After a few passes we were at 90 degrees. Straight out to the side was more painful. BUT nothing like the last time.
    scapular retractions
    Repeat 10x for 5 sec.

    Upper trap stretch
    Both sides Repeat 3x hold 30 sec

    Pendulum circles
    3 sets each direction about 20 sec each time

    Gripmaster hand exercise. Pic below
    Repeat 20x , hold 10 sec, 5lbs ( ezpz)
    MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead
    Wrist supination stretch
    Repeat 3x. Hold 20-30sec

    Wrist flexor stretch /both ways
    hold 30 sec ,5 sets

    New (everything below)
    Layed on my left side. Arm extended on my right side.
    Shrug up hold 2-3sec ,shrug down hold2-3 sec.
    Repeat 10x

    Move/shrug forward hold 2-3sec/ shrug backward
    hold 2-3 sec. Repeat 10x

    Then i had to do these clockwise 10x and counterclockwise 10x

    Wrist curls
    5 sets x 8reps

    Reverse wrist curls
    5 sets x 8 reps

    Reverse curls
    3 sets x 8 reps

    Cryo ice therapy.
    This completed my therapy today. I dont think i missed anything. I will repeat stretching at home 1-2x ed. As much as i can.
    Bicep is swollen ... Crazy how swollen it is... I hope this isnt going to be an issue. Hopefully this is holding a shit ton of water.

    Some more salad today
    Grilled chicken, lettuce, carrots, pimento olives.

    Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Day 7 protocol
    Ok last few days had to lay off. Ended up going to the doc
    After a few days of self medication. (Asthma). Nothing was working. Anyway had to get dreaded prednisone and new antibiotic. Seems to be helping so far.
    Today was therapy.
    Introduced Electric stimulation. Upper shoulder/clavical.
    Created a shrugging motion/retraction. Lasted for 20minutes.
    Also introduced a band version of a forward delt raise.
    Hands were in front about 45-60degrees and pull downward so each hand come down to my side allowing the tension to pull my arms back to a forward position allowing a nice stretch (hold for 5 seconds)
    Another new movement.
    Lying on my back using my left arm,i hold this 2-3 foot 1" pvc pipe. At the top it is in The shape of a T. This ianwhat it looks like actually. The letter. (T.) So with my right hand i hold the top cross section. Now i use my right hand to push the T in an upward position across my body into the air while hold the top with my right hand.

    scapular retractions
    Repeat 10x for 5 sec.

    Upper trap stretch
    Both sides Repeat 3x hold 30 sec

    Pendulum circles
    3 sets each direction about 20 sec each time

    Gripmaster hand exercise. Pic below
    Repeat 20x , hold 10 sec, 7lbs ( ezpz)

    Wrist supination stretch
    Repeat 3x. Hold 20-30sec

    Wrist flexor stretch /both ways
    hold 30 sec ,5 sets

    New (everything below)
    Layed on my left side. Arm extended on my right side.
    Shrug up hold 2-3sec ,shrug down hold2-3 sec.
    Repeat 10x

    Move/shrug forward hold 2-3sec/ shrug backward
    hold 2-3 sec. Repeat 10x

    Then i had to do these clockwise 10x and counterclockwise 10x

    Wrist curls
    5 sets x 8reps

    Reverse wrist curls
    5 sets x 8 reps

    Reverse curls
    3 sets x 8 reps

    Cryo ice therapy.
    This completed my therapy today.
    Its like doing a forward delt raise laying on your back. The only difference is all the weight is on my left arm by pushing the T im holding the top stretching the shoulder a little further and holding it at the highest point with the most tension. I did this 20x.
    Will be starting my protocol back tonight.
    Getting on the treadmill now. Update more as i go.

    Exclamation Re: MD24 recovery log. Back from the dead

    Yesterday did the treadmill one time. Still hocking up a lot of phlegm and thick mucus! Come on the 27th. Hopefully i can get out of this sling. We will see.
    Started incorporating some light band work on the left side.
    Forward and side delt raise. 3 sets x 8
    3 sets of hammer curls x 8
    3 sets of supination curls x 8
    3 sets of one arm shoulder press x8.
    Everything is light but dont want to cause any unwanted stress on my right side from using the left. So im feeling things out as i go.
    Sleep is still horrible. I dint get to sleep til about 5am or so.
    Usually the best sleep i have is between 8-12am.
    Today is day 8 protocol. 500mcg bpc157.
    Definitely feelnas though it is helping a lot. Everytime i go to therapy they are very surprised how much better and smoother my range of motion has become with the protocol they have for me.
    My hair seems to be growing faster my nails harder and longer. Looking Forward to see what the next few weeks have in store for me.
    Will begin some stretching soon and update my daily plan.
