Recovery log after surgery


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Recovery log after surgery within the Anabolic Steroids category.

Excerpt: Ok been away a while. 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. It made it so i could not move or feel my right shoulder or arm at all. Felt very weird. Repaired the labrum, rotator and reattached my bicep tendon. Who knew it was 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.

    Re: Recovery log after surgery

    Today therapy was split between 2 people. My normal therapist and an assistant.
    Always start off with stim .
    Followed by stretching out the shoulder and bicep, laying on th3 table while the therapist manipulates the arm.
    Next she does a scapula massage/ work.
    Then restretches out the shoulder.
    Next. Laying on my side do shrugs.
    In a circular motion clockwise then counter. Clock wise 2 top
    2 back 2 bottom 2 forward equals 1. Rotation. So we do 30 in both directions.
    Laying on my back t bar extensions above the head and then out to the shoulder. 30 reps both exercises. Hold 5 sec.

    Laying on my side. Elbow on my side 90%.
    Side laying external rotation. (Forgot the name of exercise...lmao)1lb weight
    Wrist curls. 5lbs(very light)
    Bicep curls 3lbs and 5lbs sets of 20 x2
    Reverse curls 3lbs and 5lbs 20reps x 2
    Hand Grip (blackcolor)
    30 squeezes hold each for 5 seconds.

    Isometrics using the wall 2 sets of each 30sec hold each.
    Delt raises
    Forward, top -of palm against the wall,
    side -top of palm against the wall
    rear -palm pressing against the wall
    Standing palm against the wall elbow bent at the side 90% press inward with palm
    Back of palm against the wall bent at elbow 90% angle press outward against the wall

    Delt raises. 2 sets 20 reps hold 5 sec thumb upward
    1.Forward
    2.Between forward and side about 2 oclock position
    3. Side raises. Raise the arm. Just under half way.

    Low rows with blue bands. 2 sets x 20reps hold 5 sec

    Tricep pushdowns with blue bands
    2 sets 20 reps slow controlled for a 3 sec hold
    2 sets 20 reps hold 5 sec standing lat pull downs with blue bands
    Standing wall reach/extentions. W/towel. Trying to reach up the wall with my hand on the towel. 1 set 20 reps
    Side: Cannot do these. My arm cannot turn to the side with my hand up(like when you wave to someone).

    Re: Recovery log after surgery

    This is very different than having what i call normal rotator cuff or labrum surgery.

    Put both your hands up in front of you. Like your gonna smack hands with someone or play patty cake.

    With your palms facing outward i can rotate the left hand/arm to the left side of my body.

    Cant do that at all on the right side. I Can move my right hand/arm to the right about 3-4"from patty cake position un front of my body... 3-4" inches.... Wtf. There is no rotating to the side at all.. This is the first time trying these today.. This sucks and is very painful. Its like there is no longer a socket for the arm to rotate freely in. Like there is a block wall on the right side of my body against my upper arm, and shoulder.

    I hope this new bicep tendon placement isnt the cause. If so, i hope this will not be a problem now. This is the Beginning of 5 weeks into therapy.

    To be accurate today is the 13th therapy visit

    The role of anabolic hormones on wound healing:
    Exogenous administration of these agents has been shown to maintain or increase lean body mass as well as directly stimulate the healing process through their anabolic and anticatabolic actions. Follow the link below:The Role of Anabolic Hormones for Wound Healing in Catabolic States

    Some new info i was told to check out.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/26328801/

    Who knew.. If this is true. Why not do both seperate. Recovery time seems to be significantly less.
