Update on my elbow...


Thursday, January 24, 2013

Went to my primary doctor on Monday and found out that I have a kind of bursa in my elbow. The swelling should go down in time. I was kind of upset when he told me that he couldn't understand why the other doctor didn't know what it was. He also was not thrilled with the medications I was given. They made me so tired and sick alond with kicker headaches. No wonder I was so down. The doctor said I never needed them and asked how my stomach was because the antibiotic has been known to cause stomach ulcers in some patients. Lovely. The good news is that even if the problem occurs again, rest and cold packs should take care of it. The bad news...no pushups,pullups or using free weights ever again. I will just have to exercise my arms without weights. I guess I will just have to live with that.

Perhaps this setback will lead you to other ways of exercising that will be just the ticket for you (there has to be a silver lining in the cloud somewhere, right?)

    Sounds like a better evaluation of your elbow! There are alternate exercises and at least you didn't the stomach issues he talked about.

btw- Never say never! Mum had bursitis and successfully had acupuncture to treat it. At 79, no bursitis in her body!
