    I feel the same way about our memory foam pillows. I guess i never gave the mattress much of a chance.

    See now you're spoiled. Lol

  5. Well, that wasn't very f'ing pleasant. Training today is out, I got some significant wrist drop from the marcaine around my radial nerve. It's gonna be like this for a few more hours.

    He used Celestone and marcaine for the injection. The bad news is that the injury is worse than we thought. The tear is really close to the radial nerve, and he thinks I have a traction injury to the radial nerve along w the tear.

    The ultrasound was really cool: he pointed everything out as he was working. He also saw some adhesions keeping the radial nerve held down on the humerus that he freed up with the needle.

    This guy knows his s.hit, young Arab dude that does nothing but non-operable ortho stuff. He's actually the guy that dx'd my last shoulder repair, and he referred me to one of his partners who's one of the surgeons for the tigers.

    He's confident that the injection will decrease the inflammation enough that I should be able to bench and pull again. If not, he mentioned PRP next.

    Fml...

    Squats are programmed off my 375 meet squat, so things continue as normal there. I did notice the time off has had some effect, but that will work itself out over the next month or so...
    I got SIS brother. I'm doing therapy twice weekly with some movements daily. It has helped tremendously. Interested?

    Here's the view from the bottom.

    Meh, there's often more to it than that. I've had a Mumford procedure on the right - he did it open, and that's supposed to clear room for everything to move under the acromium. It worked for about 6 months. A lot if times there are cuff tears/labral tears that don't show up MRI.

    I haven't had a cam yet but the therapy is helping immensely. While I'm sure surgery is inevitable in my situation I'm avoiding it for now. I hate down time / recovery

    If your rotator cuff is irritable on a regular you probably have it though there are several reasons for it. Muscle imbalances and bone spurs causing tears are common

    It is. I'm guessing from muscle imbalances. I neglected overhead pressing and the importance of rear delt work up until April-May.
