There goes the biking season 🤬

Depends on which you want to sacrifice, biking or skiing.

You could wait to October/November to do the shoulder op. You’ll probably miss skiing the busy Christmas/New Year period. But would be ready for skiing when the snow is good. Skiing is less demanding on shoulder function than cycling, which is good. Just don’t fall, or you undo the doctor’s good work

Interesting article on continuing training around the injury....

In summary: « So, if you are recovering from an injury and have the option of training around the trauma – do it! Training one limb helps build strength in both.«

@BobinCH,top effort given the shoulder issue. There's a video somewhere on facebook of Marcel Hirscher doing pistol squats with weights while his ankle was in plaster.

@holidayloverxx, was trying to keep the weight of the shoulder but it was smarting... the missus reckons I should be able to do them one handed 🤣 The dilemma is how hard to push. Seeing a Physio next week which will hopefully help with striking the right balance. love to see the Hirscher pic if you’ve got a link to it?

@BobinCH,

Brilliant to get out so soon after the chop.

I did the same as you when I broke my back and had a grade 3 shoulder separation - worked on it. I was slow to get back to climbing and should have pushed more. Not pushed stupid hard but hard enough.

Research says it helps with balance (which lies behind a lot of injuries), muscle bulk (protects joints a lot) and mental approach (a critical issue - ski over-defensively and Sh”t can happen).

But The Rules for my brood are different to The Rules.

Rule 1 is existing Rule 7. Not being stupid helps avoid a lot of grief and problems.

Rule 2 is avoid injury at all cost - push the envelope slowly and remain intact to ski tomorrow (last week ValaisGrom2 was tripped deliberately at school and that’s messed up anything which needs his right wrist, which is improving slowly - we are very fed up). Rule 1 is very connected to Rule 2 - always risk-assess in skiing as in climbing - every move.

Bob I am not saying you were stupid to get injured - I’m just trying to ensure my top Grom stays elite and yet uninjured. This tries to avoid the nonsense of an acquaintance who is a wreck and constantly has huge shunts and massive surgery and yet encourages his young son to push way too far, almost as a justification for his own excess. It’s bad to watch.

Enjoy being back in the meadows and I hope it all improves fast...

My PT guy, who’s studying for his PhD, said there’s some study report that THINKING about exercise help reduce muscle wasting after surgery! Shocked

In the study he read, patients were ask to mentally “visualize” a session of specific exercise of the limb that were operated on. Compared with thise who don’t do the “mental exercise”, their muscle stay in better shape by the time they start the actual exercise in the gym.

2 week check: doc happy, crutches and brace gone. Walking without limp and ROM stretching the order of the day.

Couldn’t resist a little ride although can’t get past 90 degrees so was a one legged effort!

4 week check:

Despite getting a DVT on a flight, whoops, the wound has healed up nicely and the swelling has gone down enough to get approx 110 degrees of ROM



And after a couple of warm up rides on the trainer, finally out on the road bike. Got beasted by the girls on the hills but great to be out!

@kitenski, yep had a DVT 10 years ago so have a full length compression sock - think Nora Batty 🤣 - that I wear on longer flights. Alas seems that the knee swelling complicated things. Now on blood thinners for 3 months... About to get on another flight so hope they work!!!

The pills i’m on (Xarelto) apparently have no antidote so they tell you to be very careful to avoid injuries - particularly anything where you hit your head. Definitely don’t want to be on these for long!

@BobinCH, yes, many folks in the UK still decide to take warfarin instead, despite the pain in the butt of regular blood testing, just because there is a readily available antidote available.

Haha it’s the mountain biking I’m worried about!

Apparently it only stays in your system for 24 hours so stopping the pills on Friday, start again on Sunday might work....?

Yeah the stuff I'm on is the same with no antidote but I'm not sure what the actual risk is long term in terms on injuries, I've vaguely tried to google studies and there doesn't seem to be much of an evidence basis for any recommendation.
The actual dose seems to be pretty low long term, I'm on a quarter of my initial dose and no one seems to suggest stopping activities if you're on stuff like aspirin or brufen.

My mum is on rivaroxoban (which when I googled to find out how to spell it, I see is the generic name) - when she's had to go in for day surgery, they just have her stop it on the day. When she was prescribed it, this was the big advantage they cited over warfarin, as it clears the system so quickly (she's 90 with a bit of arrhythmia, so slightly different situation ...)

I'm not a doctor etc etc.

8 week update: knee coming along nicely. Almost full ROM back. Doing lots of squats, hamstring curls and deadlifts. Legs feel strong. Still a bit of swelling after exercise so continue to use ice. Physio recommended massaging and moving the patella to remove scar tissue. Feels a bit weird but seems to loosen it up. First time out on Verbier’s downhill trails today... was careful not to fall. It was bloody great 😜

Alas yes. One of the ligaments snapped 😬. Mountain bike fall on the downhill trails and landed awkwardly on it. On crutches for 3 weeks. Really enjoyed the mtn biking while it lasted mind...

@BobinCH,
Only just seen this thread. This isn't right. I was enticed to look at first by the title. It didn't say "gut churning picture of the sort that has always made Hammondo hurl". The Under 18's and the non medically trained could accidentally view this stuff.

To think, I was only a poor forecast away from a bumper day in Chamonix with you on the 31st April. Good grief man.

Then the picture at the end. Oh my lord.

Get your self right and slow down a bit.
