Been a lurker for a while now and I thought now could be a good moment to ask for some good advice…
I’ve got this surgery coming up in a couple of weeks (don’t know exactly when, maybe a couple of months) to remove a tumour near my ear and I won’t be able to lift weight above 20 pounds for around 3+ weeks unless I want to see my neck open like a zipper.
For the nutrition part, I’ll be forced unto a liquid only diet for a couple of day so it’s no biggy, but I’m really wondering what I could do to preserve my muscle mass. I know 3 weeks is quite a break from the gym. I’ve been training for 3 years, gained about 30+pounds (I’m 24 at 155 and 5’6")
Anyway, I’m not really nervous about the operation since It’s fairly common and it’s 80+% likely benign, but still…
For all you md’s that may read this we believe it’s a Pleomorphic Adenoma
Thanks guys !!
