I had surgery late January to reattach my pec major tendon to the bone.
Recovery has for the most part been on track (much slower than I’d like) up until the past week or two where I’ve been getting a lot of swelling, pain (seems like nerve pain since it’s shooting down my tricep into my elbow) and reduced ROM/strength. Naturally I struggle with ROM and overall flexibility.
I saw the physical therapist and she has me backing off the regiment for a week, continuing to heat and ice my shoulder and wants me to take ibuprofen (surgeon told me no ibuprofen for six months).
Any tips or input you guys could give? Thoughts on ibuprofen? Anything I should or shouldn’t be doing to speed up the recovery process?
