Well, almost four months later.

Surgery has been postponed until nobody knows due to CV19. Physical fitness regime stepped up a bit. I'm riding bicycle three days a week and doing weights about the same. Up to 25-30 pushups and bench pressing about 80% of my body weight for 15 reps. Pretty happy with the way I have managed to come back into fitness, or even better than I was. Running into tendonitis now in the elbows and have had to cut back on weight on the curls. I remember this happening 25 years ago when I was working with a coach. Too much weight and old tendons is bad bad bad.

Physical symptoms from the neck pretty good, still have the neurological pain and tingling, but it's limited to both wrists and thumbs, thankfully.

Just ran across this Ernie. I am glad to see the update after reading the first page.
You are too old to ride motorcycles.

Let me know if I can be of assistance. You can contact me through either of these:
Instagram: coach_cabo
rob@coachcabo.com

I am dealing with elbow tendon problems right now but working through them. I might be able to make suggestions once I know more.

Heal up my friend.

Well, sheeit. Surgery is scheduled for about a month from today. I am looking forward to it, not. I've got someone staying with me during convalescence, my Doc says it's not a big deal for someone in my shape ( naturally amazing.)

However, I am not looking forward to many weeks, if not months of convalescence as the bone knits. I spent the last several months seriously working out to get in shape for the forced idleness. Not supposed to lift more than ten pounds for weeks. ughh

Ernie, did they prescribe a bone growth stimulator? My surgeon did. I can't really know if it helped, but they are supposed to stimulate the production of bone cells.

Example

Best of luck to you, hope you heal fast and well.

That 10lb limit is a real pain. I had that for a while after a surgery. Couldn't even pick up my cat!

Everything weighs 10lbs. (Save the remote and a "12oz beverage")

Especially if you use that boner growth stimulator thingy.

Well, off to the hospital this AM, trying to get the boner growth stimulus set up so I can have a good experience.
