      Really sorry I've been mia for a while had a lot going on the last 6months, things had become increasingly hard and have been kinda depressed trying to manage things and money and working as much as possible but still not cutting it..So here we are again.. had surgery on my left shoulder and bicep. (Been dealing with this since nov2020) Some damage to the labrum , the supraspinatus was 90% torn, totally off the top of the bone ( rear top 1/4) . Also performed a bicep tenodisis and cleaned up some other stuff all left side. Been dealing with this for some time. Was suppose to have this surgery back in the beginning of June but was in a car accident that fractured my 5th rib on easter so everything was pushed.
      back ..
      I will try and give updates of therapy and exercises, supplementation, and full recovery details..
      I will be starting back on my trt. I will use heal from IML and kratom for pain.
      The nerve block was a disaster... Couldn't get it. Couldnt locate the roots or find it...idk but I had to lay there with my head back to the side for almost 40 minutes. While he stuck and restuck my neck and dug around trying to find it.. he withdrew that needle 3or 4 times that I remember. It must of become very dull because he couldn't push it back through and into my neck.. they come back three times waiting for me in the operating room. Til he gave up and said he would just give me more along the nerve..
      Woke up after. Had a hard time breathing. Diaphragm was numb do to the extra meds could only take a half breaths.. was there for about 4 hrs after surgery do to this issue. They released me anyway. Went in at 9am didn't leave until 6pm. Surgery was Friday the 9th. Had some issues had to use my nebulizer to help with breathing. Lasted for almost 2 days..til I was able to breath normally again.
      Feet ankle and lower leg swelled that Monday BP jumped up pretty high had to go to the cardiologist. Gave me meds for water reduction and bp. Since COVID and I was hospitalized over a yr ago I've been seeing a cardiologist I have a small section of my heart that has scar tissue on it and doesn't function...
      Anyway I started my therapy yesterday. Will keep everyone updated ..

      damn man that's pretty freaking brutal for sure. couple things to help that you can consider. bpc157 at 3-400 per day and you can put it anywhere you want it it doesnt have to go in the area. it will pull out inflammation and speed up healing. tb is also good from what some say, i personally didnt get shit out of it. gh of course is a good addition at 1-3ius per day. it helps heal damn near everything under the sun esp in us older folks. eq/deca and or npp at very low dsing along with your hrt. they also promote healing as well. eq helps regrow tendons and stuff from what i have read. all things to think about.

      hope you have a quick and less painful recovery man. also if you have damage in your heart that scared and doesnt function now, do they think you had a heart attack? injectable l carnitine is good for heart health and fixing all the bull shit we got from covid. look into that one as well

      Also did the bike for 20minutes and the treadmill for 15 minutes .
      Took my heal..after therapy today .. I'm very sore.. I must have really been over compensating with my scap do to how bad the tear was.. because shoulder and scap seem to be on a different page..real clanky, shoulder feels pulled forward and kinda twisted inward.
      Scap keeps trying to do a lot of the moving/control. Hopefully I'm out of the block and sling this week or next. Friday is six weeks since surgery .

      Things have been progressing.. (left shoulder/bicep)
      Not as smooth as I had hoped.
      Ha e some issues with the scap area/ rear trap area of the shoulder. My range of motion is pretty good in some areas.
      Can't put my arm back like a double bicep pose. Can't rotate the forearm upward when out to the side. (Like a standing bench press position). The arm rotates up and back only about half way.. again think of being in a standing bench press position. Elbows against the wall. The goal is to rotate the arm so the forearm and back of the hand touch the wall. But I can only rotate about halfway back .. this is much tougher than last time I had this surgery on my right shoulder and bicep..been going to therapy 3days a week. Sorry for lack of updates. It's been rough kind of depressing with my work situation and the holidays.

      Starting wrist curls and reverse wrist curls also .
      Doing some side resistance work with bands
      Keep Elbow at my side forearm out in front of me . And pull across my body outward 2 sets of 20
      Then I hold the band pulling away from the body elbow at my side and forearm out in front I pull the forearm across the towards the hip. Hold 3sec then the band pulls the forearm back away from th body and I try to allow this to stretch out the shoulder /bicep rotating the forearm back away from me toward the wall. Hold 3 sec repeat 20x.
