I'm having trouble seeing how Walkway was out of line here. Circumstances of the OP aside, the form isn't good. He knows this. And most of us know that barbell bench pressing falls on the more dangerous end of the spectrum, as far as the various lifts go.
I understand that the OP has a serious condition that prevents him from bench pressing with better form. That's why I think Walkway's advice to maybe alter exercise selection was reasonable. This is the bodybuilding section. If the OP was a powerlifter, obviously the advice would be different. Hell, even strongmen don't necessarily have to do much flat bench work. Just some thoughts.
As others have said, best of luck DFRELAT. We're all brothers in iron here.
