Shoulder Surgery, Stretching and Edamame, Mung Bean Fettuccine
I am six weeks post right should AC joint construction and
got to throw away my sling today. The first six weeks post
surgery was immobilization of the shoulder. This next six weeks is getting full range of motion back – BUT NO WEIGHTS OR LIFTING
MORE THAN A HALF GALLON OF MILK (or milk equivalent:-!). So the physical therapist almost broke my arm off (just kidding) but it
hurt like hell when he moved my arm over my head. So I have bands to strengthen certain muscles in my arm and then just move it in all directions. In six week then maybe I get to lift a dumbbell or two. First time I started my car with my right hand today in 6 weeks!Yahoo!
