if anyone has went through something similar please tell me of you experiences.
just went back to work, on limited duty, after being out on sick leave for almost 3 mths. recovering from emergency retina detachment surgery in my rt eye. the doc told me when I get back to the gym not to push it. I also have 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 or be moved to the position that I'm currently working at. it would be @ $5/hr less than I make now.
I loved to lift heavy. before the surgery I was dead lifting 505, squatting 465, and benching 365 for reps. not bad for 56 but nothing special. the doc told me I should not go over 315. I'm not sure if that's a number that he came up with or I said and he agreed.
I'm planning on heading back to the gym in Nov. mostly start on cardio, kettle bell, and ab work. I know that I can't do things like handstand pushups. not sure about decline bench or other ex's that are head down. I'm also wondering if dips and pull ups would be ok. got to figure out a whole new program and any suggestions would be welcome.
