If I had not been assured by the surgeon that the implant was fine, I'd be quite concerned. The diagnosis is swollen, irritated tendon from overuse.
The fix is rest & ice. If it hurts - stop! I haven't even done my therapy for the last two days, much less think about the gym. Sigh.
Who would have ever thought, I'd be upset about not going to the gym? Not me.
I'm trying to embrace this. I can get a lot of reading done and squeeze in some guilt free candy crush while I'm resting.
I have the rest of my life to go to the gym and get into good shape. I don't have to rush. It isn't like I'm recovering from a heart attack or that my weight has created other issues like high blood pressure or diabetes.
I'll hobble along the best I can. One day, I'll be going to the gym regularly and want a free day to lay with ice in my lap playing games.
