RE: 5 weeks after inguinal surgery
HP-

Did you see Meyers in person or was it the phone conversation? I have a phone appt. next week.

If i was not so out of shape I would feel great!!

One thing I will reiterate to those who think they have it:

Go to a doctor. The imbalances that my body contorted its way into are more difficult to unwind than the surgery.
My Pubalgia is like 97% healed. Have not had an inkling of anything the past 3 days.....and i am going hardcore now.

however:

1) My opposite side back is still weak from the muscles being overworked and stretched for 4 years...This is resolving but it takes alot of stretching

2) I know my plantar fasciatis is caused by this because my foot was everted (toes pointed to 2 o'clock) and post surgery my foot is straight ahead so my foot is not used to walking normal. (this still hurts like a son of a bitch).

3) my torn MCL is just dumb luck but the AIS specialist said it is no accident that all my injuries happen anteriorly.

**So word to the wise....get checked please.

I never thought I would say my AP does not hurt...but other stuff does....But i will take that trade in a New York minute.

Also I want to take this time to congratulate Hockey Player. I think he approached this injury perfectly. He tried PT and tried rest. When he realized that surgery was the answer he researched diligently. He rehabbed according to plan and pushed through when appropriate.

Good luck with hockey.

Here is how i went back to lifting because I was an avid lifter.

1) day 1 ......scared.....real scared
next day.....sore and inflammed...why did i do this?
2) day 2....much the same
next day.....sore and inflamed....but disappeared quickly
3) day 3...a little heavier and more excercises
next day......sore and inflammed.....2 day recovery
4) day 4.....same workout.....
next day.....no pain...just stiff
5) day 5......more weight....adding lat pulldowns (very afraid of this excercise)
next day....no pain or tightness
6) day 6....no more fear
7) day 7....looking forward to it...

**i know that is long-winded but that is how it went. When people say the rehab is emotional this is what it is about. Knowing that you feel okay and if you push you will hurt and be inflammed for a few days.....and then you get better and climb the recovery ladder.
It sometimes is hard to push knowing this....but i applaud all who have or are in the process as we write.
