Made an appointment for the orthopedic doctor

I finally got off my butt and made an appointment with a specialist for my shoulder. It is with the same doctor that my husband has been seeing for his and the same practice that did his hip replacement. Unfortunately the visit isn’t for 2 more weeks so I am going to be in pain limbo for awhile still. I’m skipping the gym today because my shoulder really hurts but I feel guilty for doing so.

Can you do any of your workout or exercises at home?

Not really because I need weights like dumbbells or kettlebells. I’ll just load up on ibuprofen tomorrow and get my butt to the gym. If I go Wed, Thurs, Sat that will still be 3x this week which is all the owner really recommends.

@NJChicaa Well that's good. We used to have kettlebells but got rid of them before we moved. I loved mine.

@thislittlepennyearns I prefer them to dumbbells for a lot of things

Glad you finally made an appointment. I was going to suggest what April said.

Better take it easy for now, you don't want to make it worse, do you?

It doesn’t get worse. It just consistently hurts all the time.

Yeah it is probably wise to skip the gym at least today and hopefully the pain will get better so you can go workout still until you go for this appointment and hopefully it is nothing serious.

I’m afraid it is something serious as this has been going on for 2 months now. My shoulder hurts so much right now just while I sit here doing nothing

The shoulder thing has gone on for a long time. Maybe something serious at this point.

It must be or it would have healed by now. 600mg of ibuprofen doesn’t do much of anything.

Gym can happen later, when you feel better....
