LMAO at this thread. Not even two weeks later and I want to start pushing it. Peggy told me, from Humboldt, to write down a three month exercise schedule that includes only very small increases in weight and no increases in reps.

And I am taking it easy. One pushup yesterday. FACK. Could not complete it. I was doing thirty two months ago. I think it's just that the neck muscle got so hacked up that it's not cooperating. Anyway, still taking it easy.

Hey, it looks like we're on a level field. Maybe you could post your 3-month plan to recovery and I'll try to keep up...

Check with your Doc and ask for a physical therapy program. They set me up with a series of exercises to follow ( illustrated with vids and diagrams) that was tailored for my problem.

Well, a month later and improvement continues. By now most of the bone healing is done, hopefully. My exercise program continues to expand slowly, and lots of biking on the trainer, typically 1 to 1.5 hours.

Big smiles because yesterday I did a pushup and it wasn't that hard. A month ago I couldn't budge one. Based on my last rehab that should pick up quickly, though I won't be pushing it. Too much leaves me with a neck ache that lasts for days.

All in all I'm upbeat about the recovery.

Benchmark set.

I laid down on the floor and was able to push one up to the top and slowly back down. I could not break the surface tension on the second try, so I just got up, got dizzy on the way back to my chair but made it. It only took a few seconds after that for the peripheral darkness to subside, but now I kind of have a headache and my shoulder hurts.

Sounds like your approach is spot on. Pain that persists more than a day is a sign that you're hurting yourself. You're probably right that improvement will accelerate.

My physical therapist told me to start out with modified pushups, from the knee, or even against the wall, until the wound and nerves get accustomed to the strain.

It's such a weird feeling when you are trying so hard to do one pushup and nothing happens.

Sadly, my friend, the answer is yes. Please keep working, we just got a ss raise and I'm celebrating.

Well, ok
That's actually maybe the best reason I have to keep working

You mean like, girl push ups? I was able to get two regular pushups done yesterday, but still had the dizzying blackness afterwords. I'm also going to start one minute planks and try to extend the time by a few seconds each day. I went on a 10 mile bicycle ride yesterday and the crotchal area is quite tender today, but the knee is starting to feel better.

I'm just recovering from sheer laziness, so I can't even imagine how hard it is for you. I had a coworker that showed us an MRI of his neck and the spine looking like it pinched down to 1/3 the size - old injury from youth. His surgery went in from the front and he spent a year getting back to his old self and was pain free. Good luck to you
