I was told today that I shouldn't lift heavy any more. I've been out on sick leave for over 2 mths recovering from emergency retina detachment surgery in my rt eye. went in today to see the doc and was told when I get back to the gym not to push it. I've got a thinning in my left eye that might let go or it might stay fine.
it changed the rx in the eye. I can see but things still look a little like a funhouse mirror. I'm probably going to have to get cataract surgery within a year because of what they did to my eye. if it doesn't heal right I might lose my job. as of now my depth of field is still shakey.
I love to lift heavy although I'm not in the category of most of the people here. before the surgery I was dead lifting 505, squatting 465, and benching 365 for reps. not bad for 56 but nothing special. the doc I saw today told me I should probably not go over 315. got to figure out a whole new program and any suggestions would be welcome.
I mean WTF, I'm going to be one of the ugliest cardio bunny's in the gym. and yes, I'm going to get a 2nd opinion.
if you go to youtube you can see the type of surgery I had. it's rough to watch.
