    poseidon/pw/gm for recovery from surgery


    had partial knee replacement done last tuesday. had a talk with rr before and decided this stack would be good for maintaining some muscle while i am inactive. the drugs i am on have killed my appetite, but i am still maintaining muscle tone with about 3 pounds of total weight lost. physical therapy has been been rough but my therapist is amazed at how fast i am improving. so far i am impressed with how things are going. btw i also got reduction to keep weight down while i rehab but as you can guess i haven't needed to use it yet.

    pt was a little better today, i even did 5 minutes on a bike so high up my feet barely reached the pedals, pain was pretty intense. they only gave me 15 minutes to stay over and do upper body, pw/gm did their job my muscles got a little swole after just 15 minutes of light lifting. weight is down 5 pounds but i am still taking vicidin every now and then. goal is o be vicodin free by monday, i hope. btw i started taking something called wobenzym n, the guy at vitamin shoppe guaranteed me it would help or give my money back, at $139 a bottle i expect good things.

    did 10 minutes on bike at pt today, therapist gave me new exercises/stretches to do. was sore as hell, came home and ate, took 2 vicodin and threw up. just got up from a nap and feel better. btw i mixed poseidon/pw/gm up and drank before pt, getting ready to make another one. weight is down 6 pounds, not bad since appetite is way down and puking.

    Hey Bigt, sorry to hear about the knee surgery buddy. Hope you get back in the game soon my friend.

    On the bright side, at least now you have more time to get on here and hang with us AM folks.

    Hey T, IMO no need to push through the pain on the bike. At your age (young considering your procedure), you're gonna heal up rediculously fast and be running circles around that bike in about a week or 2. Hope all is going well bro

    Keep lobbying for more workout time after your sessions... once they see you're not a safety risk to their clinic, I'll bet that 15 minutes will be an hour before you know it

    I see how it is, post in bigt's log and not mine.

    I agree with Celc though bigt. Also arginine will help get more blood flow to the healing tissues. Helped me BIG time after my shoulder surgery. Keep it up bro.

    Don't worry about that T. I always make room for quality time.

    Bet it's been a killer for you, having to be gone from work for so long. Seems like you share a pretty good relationship with the establishment you work for, seeing as how you visit on you leave.

    oh yeah, most of my crew have been together a long time. we all spend so many hours at work, that we share a lot of common interests. kind of hard on new hires, since most of us have been there a long time. i work for a big corp. but my plant is mostly left alone-as long as we don't screw up.

    WE're the same way. most of us lift together and are pretty tight. but we've been known to make the newbies run through the woods for sweet freedom on lunch break

    since i have been stim free for awhile now i started with 1 red tab before pt today. i have to say i could feel a difference, i was very alert and focused. also took 1 scoop of gm with a scoop of pw and 2 scoops of poseidon. aside from the pain i continue to improve. when i got home i took another dose of gm/pw. i will take another scoop of pw/posidon before bed, along with 2 black tabs of reduction. on a side note, i have been taking wobenzym n. i have made it through an entire day including pushing it at pt without a single pain pill.

    took 2 reduction upon waking today, nice to be on stims again. i know i am a stim junkie, i just like having extra energy and stims plain old make me feel good. reduction gets high marks, so far. i expected the effects to be good since i have been stim free for a long time. btw the black pm caps made me sleep longer than i had planned, i will call that a good thing. knee is feeling better today, i think healing process is going very well. pt tomorrow.
