    Thanks Jeff -
    I thought it might be some post-op depression -I am very frustrated about not being able to do the little things -I did change therapists upon your and my surgeons advice -I hope I didn't get the guy in trouble but he had me doing 3-4 month post-op stuff that was KILLING me -last 2 weeks I felt wonderful -walking all over and seeing old friends and now I feel like I'm starting to backslide into becoming the near 'shut-in' I was over the last 4 years -Sorry to bother you but I am just scared ...

    Dr. Funk e-mailed me and told me to set up a hree way between me my surgeon and my therapist . I am going to PT tomorrow and then changing therapists -mostly because I can go to therapy 1/2 mile from home or 10 miles away to this Sadist . I'll stop all together if I feel threatened by their actions -I have an HPER minor and know kinesiology and physiology fairly well -moreover I know my own body better than any therapist .

    Thank you so much -I thought I was just being a Wus -he had me lie down on a table and with a weighted bar raise the bar from my pelvis to 80 degrees over my head , while keping my arms straight -I thought i would die -10 of those -hell, the 5 minutes on the arm bike HURTS-I have full projected rotation already -y continue strengthening ? I know you have been dopwn this road before and I hope I am not bugging u too much -just the thought of returning to where I was is haunting me .
    thanks again for the input.

    HC-just returned from therapy and would appreciate your opinion -My PTist wants to use me as ''reference'' p[atient for some frigging journal-I trusted him completely til today when he mentioned this -now I am wondering as to why my therapy is progressing so rapidly -last week I started on the ''arm'' bike and now -today-6 weeks from surgery -a little under actually -he had me lifting a weighted bar -I came home in tears -I was /am perfectly happy being out of the agonizing pain -why am I lifting a weighted bar ? My last surgery came apart in PT and I refuse to let it happen again -were you lifting 6 weeks post-op-?Am I a Research monkey ?-I have reacher ROM goals for the rest of my lofe and I am dedicated to working the passive stretches and slight exercises -SORRY-what I really would appreciate is this -Should I phone my Dr. and tell him what is going on ? I am truly afraid now -I would greatly appreciate your advice . Scared sissy boy

    Thanks for your kind reply-I'm doing so much better that I don't really want to do the PT to strenghten-I am out of pain and have some use of my arm again -that is plenty for me but the doc is fairly insistent upon it -I have great passive ROM and this surgery was for pain relief predominately but I'll keep going -I'll never raise my arm above my head again -but so what -I'll deal with it -I am sorry that you had to undergo this same /similar trauma-why is it always the good people ?-PS-1st time I've referred to myself as anything other than worthless in years-Thanks again...

    Thanks so much for your kind words -I am a crotchety old bachelor and I have to drive myself to PT, store , etc.--I was crying so hard after my first PT session that I literally couldn't see the road-I now have a rehab service picking me up and bringing me home-I am taking everything as easy as I can but living alone makes it very difficult-I had to try this procedure-couldn't stand the pain meds anymore-thanks for your thoughts as I know we have shared the same path .
