So it appears I might not need another surgery. The X-Rays show there is enough space between the clavicle. The doc gave me an anti-inflammatory prescription and recommended me to physical therapy for 6 weeks.

He wants to see me back after the therapy (Nov 24h) and take it from there, which is fucking great as I really am tired of going under the knife. But he doesn't think I will be needing any surgery.

One thing he did state that got me a little worried was that he believes if there is anything wrong it is not with my clavicle but more with my rotator-cuff and some other medical term he used, basically the joint at the end of the clavicle. But he wants to go with the rehab first.

So good news for me for today. :)

Yup, he also said I could continue my own training as long as I tell the center what my schedule is and they will work with me, i.e tell me what I can and can not do.

I was in a car accident almost 3 years ago. In that accident I sustained some serious injuries, one of them was a broken clavicle. It has been healing ever since, but the docs thought I would probably need another surgery, arthroscopic scraping if the bones were touching.

Seems like I might not need another surgery, just some more rehab therapy.

Just an FYI, after my accident I was told I would never walk again by the doctors as my pelvis was crushed as well, yet here I am, not only walking, but squatting and deadlifting...

This is great news, bro. Just goes to prove what fucking GO GETTERS and people with discipline can accomplish. Off topic but I think that taking a long hard look at your diligence and the amount of discipline involved in such defiance of the norm can go a long way in helping you with the problem mentioned in the other thread.

Thanks man, One of the hardest things I ever had to deal with, as I stated already on here, I came close to taking my life out of sheer depression while being wheelchair bound. I had put a gun to my mouth and was ready to end it all but my daughter walk in on me and ever since that day I vowed to get up from the chair and walk again.

I feel ya man, but I wasn't saying it in any Christian way, just stating how my depression was so deep that I almost succumb to it and was ready and willing to end it all.

But also, at the same time, wanted to stress the fact how the power of the mind can overcome most anything.

It's amazing what we can overcome and conquer with faith in ourselves - sometimes it takes a reminder - that life is worth it ( children are a great reminder of that ) many times I wouldn't have cared if I won this fight called life if I didn't know just how much my kids need me.

Nah brother Im just saying that Im not a typical so called christian so wont look down on your suicidal thoughts. To my ideology suicide is actually honorable. What I meant to stress was that you found and gained honor in your resolve. I think it's the same thing you can use to cure what we were talking about elsewhere.

Well first night with rehab, I am not too happy, why is that? Well I have to fucking pay $45 co-payment every fucking visit and they want to see me twice a week!!!!

OK got that out of my system, turns out I have 3 problems, inflammation, swelling on the tendons on my rotator cuff and because I have been training with the injury, the rehab guy, (I will have to remember his name) said I have forced my scapula to move forward.

He said that is the reason I can not do a front lat spread, the scapula has been move forward, he said he will work on moving it back, but we have to remove the tension on the front of my pec which is pulling on it.

He put some weird tape on my clavicle said to keep it on till our next visit said it acts as tendons? never heard of it but I have it on. Said if it starts to itch to remove it as some people are allergic to it

So we will start working on removing the inflammation and swelling first and take it from there.

No training during this time as I have only been aggravating it more.

Yup once we get the swelling and inflammation down, we will start doing some back exercises to pull the scapula back. Weird how he knew that just by checking my posture from the back.

I hope he does, he said we can correct it so I have to give him the benifit of the doubt.

Well yesterday was my second day at the rehab. Fuck this shit is somewhat painful. The ultrasound feels great as well as the massages, but the fucking stretching FUCK!! :eek:

Once again he put some tape on my shoulder that acts as added ligaments to keep my clavicle back and help support the scapula. After the stretching though, my range of motion did seem to be a little better. But man putting my arm behind my back (he uses a towel under my arm for leverage) and then lifting it up to my shoulder blades was fucking killing me!

I actually stopped taking supps. I don't stay on supps when I am not training. So for the next six weeks I am only eating real foods, no MRP's no whey, no vitamins and no supps.

Last night he showed me how to to perform some stretching movements that I can do at home. Said next week we will start doing some exercises. Said I am responding extremely well to the therapy!

When I got out from therapy two guys were sitting on my fucking car! Who the fuck sits on a shiny red car???

Trying to do the exercises the PT showed me but I must be doing them wrong cause that shit hurt like hell!

One thing I am noticing though, my mass is going down really fast! :( :(

I fucking hate my bodytype! :mad:

Sorry BH , it's amazing you wouldn't think you would lose mass that quickly with as much as you had built up again.

I know I had a small amount and leaning to much this last couple months really made a negative difference...
Hope the next 5 weeks goes quickly for you...know how much training means to you:)

Yeah Blu it sucks, but my genetic make up wants to go back to its original size and having a fast metabolism doesn't help :(

Although I am still eating pretty heavy but without the training to hold on to the LBM it starts to drop.

Meloxicam inhibits cyclooxygenase (http://forums.rxmuscle.com/wiki/Cyclooxygenase) (COX), the enzyme (http://forums.rxmuscle.com/wiki/Enzyme) responsible for converting arachidonic acid (http://forums.rxmuscle.com/wiki/Arachidonic_acid) into prostaglandin H2 (http://forums.rxmuscle.com/wiki/Prostaglandin_H2)—the first step in the synthesis of prostaglandins (http://forums.rxmuscle.com/wiki/Prostaglandin), which are mediators of inflammation. Meloxicam has been shown, especially at its low therapeutic dose, selectively to inhibit COX-2 over COX-1.
A primary advantage of the oxicam family of drugs is their long half-life which permits once-day dosing. (http://www.accessmedicine.com/content.aspx?aID=942781)

Yeah man the shit was sticking out, I always thought it was the bone, but in actuality it was the tendons/ligaments around the clavicle that were inflamed. The more I kept working out the further I was aggravating it.

OK so now we are working on the back of my shoulder, ultrasound kind of painful and we started doing some band exercises, like the way this is going.

Gave me a band to take home, but only to do 2 exercises, 2 sets each at 10 reps.

Doing the two exercises today at home, but have too much clicking and pain in the shoulder doing one of the movements.

Notice that while I did the movements at the center there was no clicking nor pain but that was after the ultrasound, heating and the PT stretching massaging the shoulder.

Not sure if I should continue doing the movement with this much discomfort.

Did a quick run to the PT center, he showed me some tricks to do.

1) Place my free hand on the shoulder and push it back while performing the movement, forcing the shoulder back and assisting the scapula, the clicking and pain stopped!

2) Perform the movement at a lesser degree, this work but I felt I was cheating the movement so I will stick with #1.

Shoulder is coming along great! The exercises are slowing working, can't wait till I can start training full force again.

Hopefully this is sooner than later.

Yeah it sucks not training but the best part is knowing that I will be able to train with a full ROM and pain free once this is over with!

FUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKKK these new exercises this mother fucker is giving me are causing my trap/neck to get strained!!!

He said because my shoulder is weak and other muscles compensate for its weakness, he said that is going to happen. So now I can't look to my fucking left! I feel like a fucking cripple!

Fuck if it is not one thing it is another somebody just fucking shoot me right now, I am so fucking tired of this shit I swear I am going to wind up killing somebody.

It is just frustrating I want to hit the gym so badly man. I have anger issues and the gym is my way of controlling it.

But I know it takes time, trust me I was out of he gym for 2 years.

LOL the problem IS that i live in the Bronx! Shit last night I went to Rite aid with my son, and for no fucking apparent reason this guy starts shit with my son, when I confronted him he left. But on our way out of rite aid, the faggot came back in a car, rolled down his window and pointed a sawed-off shotgun at me and my son.

Didn't have the balls to shoot just wanted to instill fear in us, not that fucking easy. Then drove off.
