No weights for me. At all.
Turns out that my shoulder doesn't just have a tiny little tear that might get better with physical therapy. I have a detached labrum & torn bicipital tendon!!! FUCK FUCK FUCK And did I say FUCK??? No wonder it hurts. I mean okay, it doesn't HURT, it just sort of aches. Maybe I've got a really high pain tolerance and didn't know it. It does HURT when I reach for things that weigh more than 2 lbs but only when I reach. Oh yeah it hurts when I blow dry my hair & take shirts off over my head & when I open doors with my left hand (did I tell you I'm left handed?).
I did some research on how this will have to be repaired and the recovery time. If all goes well I'm looking at 4 weeks in an immobilizer. Can you imagine having your dominant arm tied down for 4 weeks??? FUCK Maybe I'll lose some of the weight I've gained back. LOL
With the way this looks I won't be doing the Broad Street Run or the Race for the Cure this year. Or any triathlons eitherr. Fuck.
On the bright side, I get 6 weeks off from work!!! I think I'll get bored & go back as soon as I'm able. We'll see.
