It looks like I will need surgery to correct a bursa impingement in my shoulder. Has anyone here gone through this? I’m wondering how long it would be before I’d be able to continue with my weight training.
hospitilzed recovery sux, when i had my appendicitis, it was around 1-2 months, food poisoning 2 weeks (obviously lost a lot of lean weight)
never had that surgery, but alls i can recommend is to rest and eat and drink properly; better fully recovered b4 lifting than lifting and hurting oneself. eating correctly can help u recover fast, take plenty of minerals. creatine also was used (in the 50's, pharmaceutically) to repair muscle after (heart muscle) surgeries, so take a lot of that too
