Well I try my best to be honest. Yesterday I started laying pavers for a new patio. Can barely move this morning. So nothing for today and tomorrow is 1st therapy day, I guess they will have something to work with. I know I know don't push it. I'm one of those that CAN'T sit. Thanks for asking!

Well, you just better sit or whatever else it takes. Be patient - not a patient!

I'm sure you will hear about laying pavers tomorrow. go fishing or something other than crawling around on the ground lifting and bending and twisting. you sure don't want to go backwards.

i am not a doctor, and i know i cannt tell you what to do. but i suggest that you do what the doc says unless you want to miss more valuable hunting time. i know what it is like not being able to sit around. i had shoulder surgery in march and have not been able to do much since, and it is driving me crazy. good luck with the pt.

1 st day at PT, so far so good, strength in both hands/arms showed by meter well above average and motion in neck about average. PT said pain will slowly go down next 2 /3 months and motion will increase with muscle rebuild therapy. NO BOW shooting yet!!! I appreciate all the remarks sent my way, Thanks! HM

do yourself a favor and ask the PT tech for some low resistance power bands.you can use those to work your bow muscles.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
