Just got done reading the majority of the articles on the site and figured it is time to start using the forums. Need to learn how to do most everything regarding the forums such pic, log and so on.
Getting back into weightlifting because tired of weighing close to 500lbs and unable to move around as the other 3 leg joints need replacing along with the left hip I had replaced back in 1988 a bit over a month before I turned 23. Been disabled since then due to pain coming from micromovement of the pin of the replacement and phantom pain. By the time I finally got pain meds that could help me
handle things I was in the 4-500lb range and basically stuck in a power scooter or wheelchair. Still am stuck in them but tired of the lack of mobility. I know most of the pain will still be around but with new joints, the better pain pills and a huge lose of weight things will be better than the current situation.
I used to be a dedicated lifter most of the time since around age 14 until I dropped out of college at 20 due to various reasons such as pain in the two hips,money and other things. Did do a lot of pool work the months before the replacement and the couple of years after until I stopped due to being unable to handle the pain.
Enough for now as thinking about back then and the work I have ahead of me tires me out.
