Went to the Doctor yesterday with pain in my upper left chest area. It happened while I was at the Gym on saturday and progressively has gotten worse. I was 100% positive it wasn't my ticker.

It turns out that I have a 3/32" tear in my rotator cuff. They have me on Naproxen and cortisone injections to help it heal. It hurts like a bastard.

I have hell year so far health wise. Lyme disease, neck troubles, and now this.

Can't I get a break!!!!

No lifting for three weeks. Thats a killer.

Yeah man that sucks. Follow the Dr's advice & let yourself heal up.

I saw the thread & had been thinking "What a crappy day" myself. But my complaint is trivial in comparison.

I was grousing because the grass had overcome it's mini-drought & ready to be cut, but woke up to find it raining & I can't mow this afternoon. I can always mow later.

Talk about a perspective check.

Get better soon.

It's never a crappy Leo when you can get out of bed and take a breath....A crappy day is when you end up lying on the floor of a big box store...DEAD...and it brightens when someone you don't even know breathes life back into you....

Count your blessings brother!!!

By the way...Happy Birthday!

I firmly believe that hearts are made with a finite number beats. So I choose to not waste mine on things like physical activity.:D

Happy B-day. Hope you're feeling better.

The weight loss is going really well. Up to 50 lbs already. Working out has helped a ton, but I am limited in what I can do now for at least 3-6 weeks. I can already feel lethargic this week. Got on the scale last night and I had gained 4 lbs since last week. Yikes. Gotta scale back a bit until this thing gets better.

Happy Bithday Leo, every day we have is a true blessing. we should enjoy them all. I say that because I just got back from a filed trip to the pumpkin patch with my 7yr old and his class of 21. Such fun it is, I now have some really cool little friends!

And a few little rotten bastards that I will strangle when no one is looking!!!! All it takes is one of those little folks to look you in the eye and ask for help. That is what it is all about!!! Rock on man and have a great rest of the day! Enjoy the little ones tonight after you have a great B-day!:cheers:

Leolav,
How's the rotator cuff coming along? Ready to pitch relief for the Red Sox yet?:D I hope it is not as painful as you first described it and healing up for you. Still restricted on physical activity?

50 lbs. is GREAT Leo! :thumbsup: Hang in there. The working out will burn up a lot of calories but also make you very hungry. As you develop more muscle mass, you will gain a bit of weight but just keep at it. The weight is going to fluctuate until you can get into a steady stride of a daily routine and stay with it for the long haul.
