Oops.....I have joined the ODIC. I was done in by Joint Replacement Awareness Day. It was a combination of issues. First, I got so busy with preparation work that I had to cancel one of my therapy sessions (last Thursday). Then I was so busy on Friday, I didn't really do much in the way of exercises. Saturday (JRAD Day), I ended up sitting upright at my computer for pretty much 7 hours straight. Only very short breaks. And no slumping as a fair amount of the time I was "on screen" and visible to the world. By the evening ALL my muscles in my arm, shoulder and neck had tightened up from the stress of that long in basically one position. I hurt so bad I finally took some pain meds at bedtime. It was some better Sunday, but still hurt too much to do a lot of my exercises. So I just held out until I saw the therapist today. She agreed everything was tight. She did almost a full hour of massage and working my arm. The range of movement came back when she worked the muscles. But all that sure made my arm sore again. At least it's that "good" soreness of muscles working out and not the pain from tense, tight muscles. She promised that I'd be back in good shape by the end of the week. Good thing, because a report goes to my surgeon very soon and I don't want it to be that I did things I shouldn't have done. I'd get a big lecture. I went out after therapy and bought three great big ceramic pots for my front steps and porch. They'll be in the back of my car until I can find a guy or two to unload them for me and put them in place. They are WAY too heavy for me and I don't plan to risk it.
