I had my six-week post-op appointment with my surgeon today. He, in concurrence with my physical therapist, is not comfortable with my recovery and said another several weeks before I can begin returning to a fitness regime. Six weeks before he wants me to go back to my part-time job as a lifeguard. Based on a couple of setbacks I’ve had up to now, my current range of motion, and my muscular strengt…they just feel that the muscles and soft tissue aren’t ready for that yet. It’s so disappointing becasue mentally I was all ready to get back out there.
