Injured Or Sidelined

Post by Dave Tuttle on Sun Dec 14, 2014 4:10 pm

With so many of our members struggling with various injures and other problems lately I thought we should rename this topic with the hope it becomes a good place for us to support each other and maybe vent some frustration too. I know I've been pretty darn disappointed with my running since mid summer due to a torn meniscus and probable surgery in January. Rachel, Louise, Kevin, Tom and Gary have all mentioned problems lately too... I feel your frustration and hope you all get back to where you should be very soon!

I can't recall when there hasn't been some nagging achy body part...but nothing that has kept me on the sidelines...'ceptin' maybe that bit of surgery a couple of years back...By virtue of typing that...I guess it's gonna be my turn real soon.

First and foremost, Austin in February is still on for folks who want to join Marc, my Dave, and my Dave's cousin for the 1/2 and full Mary.  

Dave T, get that knee taken care of and come back strong.  I had an MRI end of November, rotator cuff repair scheduled right after the New Year, 2 tendons, my right shoulder is a MESS, it will be a slow and long recovery for me. Physical therapy, no strength training until 6 months at least.  Who said heart patients are wimps?  They are wrong.

You bet I'm asking how soon before I can run again!  There's a recumbent bike at the Y, I won't be able to do that until 6 weeks post op, at the earliest, maybe, not allowed to even lift anything heavier than a coffee cup or drive for 6 weeks.  Don't ask how I did this, it could be the weights, my clumsiness and falling over the years, getting older.......it is going to be hard to hold me down.  I'm a fighter!!!  Very Happy

What is going on with this group? If we don't start having cardiac issues instead of sports injuries they are going to pull our organization's license!!!

But in the meantime, I hope everything works out perfectly for you Louise. You are definitely a fighter (in fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you weren't throwing a punch when that injury occurred).

Ouch Louise!!! That sounds painful and I've heard about the long recovery for shoulder surgery... I wonder if you can run with your shoulder and arm immobilized? I'm not suggesting that, just wondering if it's possible without throwing your whole body out of whack.

I'm getting a second opinion on the knee asap. It's a lot better but still not quite right. The first sports orthopedic surgeon told me I had to have surgery and had to quit running... That's funny, I have over 6,000 miles on the torn meniscus in my other knee with no surgery and no problems at all. I know each tear is different but I just got the sense he wanted my money and thought geezers shouldn't run Evil or Very Mad

Louise, are you sure you need rotator cuff surgery? The recovery is long and difficult and if you are not a baseball pitcher, may not be worth the risks. I was told I needed that surgery a few years back but with therapy and exercise, didn't really need it. I may not be able to pitch for the Dodgers but I'm pain free with no surgery.

Um yeah Louise - I was thinking the same thing as Tom - if you can avoid surgery I think that's best.

Of course my husband has some surgery scheduled on his arm for next week.....and he's looking forward to being incapacitated for a few weeks knowing that I'll have to take care of him....you know he will certainly allow me to wait on him hand and foot and to take care of any snow shoveling and whatever else comes up! (Don't even go there people)

I'm with Gary. If by injury, you mean something hurts and restricts your training, then it's perpetual. But as long as I can do any exercise at all, I'm not sidelined. The heart ticks just fine, so I'm good.

I would avoid surgery at all costs but not able to in this case.  Yes, I am sure, MRI shows all of the problems and I have weakness.  I have a full thickness tear on top of my shoulder that won't heal without surgery, and I have other issues including pain, all is aggravated by simply using my arm.  Sad  Physical therapy will be part of my recovery.  A lady in my neighborhood had surgery on both shoulders, it was not a walk in the park but she is as active as she was before surgery, she has full range of motion back, she wasn't as messed up as I am.....

I hope Nate has a successful surgery, a bump free and speedy recovery.

So very sorry to hear that you'll have to go through this!!! I'll be sending you good thoughts. Thanks for your good wishes for Nate but I'm not kidding when I say that he's looking forward to being laid up and all the honey-do perks that come with that.....mostly that he won't have to shovel any snow we might get.

Seriously wishing you some relief and a sucessful recovery!

That's when you say "Give me the credit card, I'm buying a snow blower." Smile

Shoveling snow is a good alternative exercise, especially when you need to rest your foot and can't run. People pay good money to go to the gym and do the same motions.
