Return to Strength Training Almost - Day 7

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

WW-III in my neck has subsided from all-out war, to bouts of skirmishes, to last nightís occasional sortie.

The Percocet allowed for a more restful sleep with no ensuing nausea; but I still had to take Ĺ doses every 2 to 3 hours. Iíve been through enough surgeries in my lifetime to regulate that powerful drug to my advantage. A full dose every 4-hours has always played havoc on my digestive system.

Iíve learned to make a protein smoothie with water and take a small portion upon waking to take with the meds. For me itís much better than taking it with just water.

So now on my 7th day post-op of ďAlmost Strength TrainingĒ; my walk was increased to 60-minutes; lunges were increased to 20 sets of 15 Reps; Body weight squats - 10 sets of 5 Reps, and counter pushups to 2 sets of 25 Reps.

My neck from the activity is a little tight but feels good. emoticon

Pain pills were stopped after 4:00 AM this morning as upon waking for the day I can deal with it. But Iíll start them again after dinner Ė hopefully they will quell the battlefield even more.

That my friends would be welcomed relief. emoticon Spark on my friends. Earl

    Pain is, well, a pain in the rear. Good to know the Percocet is helping you sleep, it's impossible to get better if you are robbed of at least a comfortable nights sleep.'

Here's hoping the pain subsides even more and you feel much better
