    Get some comfort food, a high def TV, and make the best of it. Give your body time to heal. You can get lean when you're healed up. Chill for a bit.

    Paraphrased from the link above...
    Rest and take it easy for 1-2 weeks. No exercise.
    Gradually increase activities as approved by your doctor.

    Aloha and Be Well!

    Recently, I had my right short (inside) bicep re-attached after I tore it off. Post surgical stiffness, and pain, can be a drag.

    I got my cast off in 12 days (most folks have it on about three weeks), got out of my R.O.M. brace in only 17 days (many folks go 16 weeks in the ROM brace), and had full range of motion in only 34 days.

    I was aggressive in my post surgical physical therapy. I had been lifting weights for 34 years. I was in good shape, before, and after. I had a great occupational therapist who helped me. I had a top notch surgeon who had a degree in biomedical engineering and graduated at the very top of his class at John Hopkins.

    It was lights off, and lights on. It was not as bad as I expected.

    Logan / flex89 worked my arm every day, several times, and helped me get through the post surgical trauma / stiffness.

    Now, I'm stronger than ever (scar tissue and muscle is stronger), and banging away as always.

    If you have questions for your doctors, ask them.

    Give yourself time to heal; take it easy. When the doc says it's o.k., then, it's probably o.k. No rush.
