My first run since the shoulder surgery!

I was SO excited yesterday, I got the stitches out! I was able to do many things that were forbidden since the surgery. I went on my first run, oh that was liberating! You can see that it was a beautiful day too, it felt good to drip sweat without having to worry about it causing infection in my sutures. I also was able to take my first real shower, oh how glorious to be able to stand under the shower head without having my shoulder wrapped in saran wrap, paranoid that a drop of water might get by.

The massive inflammation in my shoulder is slowly being knocked out by some high power drugs that I cant WAIT to get off of but I at least need to keep on them till things are under control. I working on my passive range of motion myself but dont dare start rehab physical therapy exercises until my first PT appointment next week. I’m still not sure how long it will be before I can start upper body workouts but for now, my immediate goal is much lower – I just want to be able to put a glass on the top shelf in the kitchen :)

  1. Hey Scooby,
    good to hear your shoulder's getting better, thumbs up!
    Btw, I can recommend comfrey salve for your inflammation – I've had very good experience with using it in the healing process a number of times. It is also very often used in horce racing also to prevent and heal injuries of tendons and shrouds. (I used the high concentrated "horse edition" salve from a friend of mine who is a vet :-))

  2. Hey Ross,

    That is great to hear! Its probably wishful thinking that I had any small part in the downfall of those ridiculous products! If only the shake weight would go away!!!!! Arrrrgh!

  3. Hey Scooby. I wanted to know if you tried liquid glucosamine for your shoulder. I've experienced joint and back pain in the past and glucosamine, in addition to exercise and nutrition, has helped me.

  4. hey scooby…a little off topic, but have you checked your "Hall of Shame" page lately? there's several links that are out of date or don't exist.

    -the "Red" swivel barstool
    -the Love Handler
    -the Foldaway Elliptical Slider
    -the Strike Trainer
    -Anator:P70 has been discontinued by MuscleTech. (you won… aren't you proud?!?)

  5. Happy for you Scooby. One thing I can say, nice weather sure makes bodybuilding an enjoyable activity. Doing it in full clothing indoors is not that pleasant an experience.

  6. I can see the leg workout is working! (or maybe you ve always had big legs, dunno). Good to hear things are going well there. Keep it up !!!
