Thanks all, the pain is getting less, but it is still there.
I start therapy monday, thats when the fun begins, seriously, then I might be able to get my arm out of this sling for a bit.
I am going to try to get some cardio done later today, for some reason I have been having a horrible time with breathing.
I hope anyone reading all of this gets some insight on how a surgery can effect you, and how you can keep on training.

Well I got about 22 min of cardio out before I fizzled away, I just gotta keep at it.
I can tell the lack of ability to do what I love is really starting to kick my ass.
Depression kicked in hard last night, and it aint let up at all.
Just gotta hang on, at least when therapy starts I will get some arm work in

Alright, well today I had a great leg day.
Leg press 270*15
Many assortment of calf press from 270*25 to 140*30 on a different machine.
Leg extention 70*10
leg curl single leg 60*15 each
machine assisted deadlifts, I know thats not really what its called but its the exact same motion, and muscles trained, just on a machine. 230*10
Then I finished the sucker off with 30 min of eliptical.
Will probebly be back later.
Only crap part of today is that my household is on a new buget, so my food intake is not good, and depression has been keeping me in bed untill around 11am, so less time to eat.
I am seriously behind on the caloric intake today, at 930kcal when I should be about 1500 by now.

Don't underestimate the effect of the analgesics in fostering depression. Depression is as real as a heart attack, and needs to be respected for what it is. Positive vibes to you! :sunny:

Today I rocked it in the gym, 40 min cardio and a ton of leg presses and calf raises.
For some reason I am not getting sore like I used to, so I just keep pushing it.
I noticed today that I lost some tricep size in the right arm so I did some simple lifts.

I'm so glad to hear you're feeling much better.

I thought I might of had to have surgery on my shoulder too.

Zinzen you're so brave :D

Brave, eh...maybe real stupid.
I have no problem putting myself back many strides, must be a self hate thing, or a fear of failure. Cant fail if you are always broken :)
Holy crap did I have the worse night ever, such sickness no words could describe.
I puked for 2 hours, every 20 minutes, nothing coming out, for no damn reason.
I was begging whatever god there was out there to stop the pain.
Luckly my awesome wife stayed home from work and set up camp in the bathroom with me.
What a gal.
Once god stopped the thrashing of my abdomen muscles, then came it all out the other side, feel me.
Needless to say I am sitting here dehydrated, starved and afraid to eat or drink anything.
Horrible.
To all those out there not dying today, praise whatever deity you take homage in, the light is shining down on you.
Have a good saturday peoples

hmm, a baby drink, well I do enjoy baby food, maybe I will give it a whirl.
I say stupid because at this point of time nothing good is happening.
I am in a shit ton of pain, the drugs are making me sick as a dog, cant lift, work or see straight.
But itll be better, and in time my shoulder will be stronger and I will be able to push more weight.
I am just going through the timee period where I really wish I wouldnt have done it, where I wish I could sleep without a massive sling thingy on.
Monday I start therapy, so stuff should be better after then, just feeling slighty dumb is all.

Wow 2 days after being sick and I am still feelind horrid.
I have no clue what caused this, but I am seriously freaking out about eating most anything in this house, and I just caught myself ripping off a shirt that I wore an hour before I threw up for fear that it may have caused it, I dont know how this relates to a surgery post but it sure as shit hurt my shoulder :)
I think this tells me that the whole experiance tramatized me somewhat when you arent even able to wear clothes.
Holy poo I feel bad, dont know what to do at this point, but I do know I want to get to the gym.
