Alright so i posted about two weeks ago about my tennis elbow. I had all my appointments today And wow what a bad day.
Alright so i went to PT and i have this lady, the first thing she realizes is its Tricep Tendonitis not tennis elbow. She hooks me up with some thing that shocked some steroids into my elbows, we get to talking and she proceeds to tell me, “Hey, if you wanna play football you might wanna consider not lifting weights.” You cant be serious! Alright so that went kinda bad but my elbows didn’t feel too bad after.
I than traveled 60 miles to go see a sports physician i was refered to.After waiting about an hour i got to talk with him. He told me since this injury is from overuse theres no quick fix for it. I asked him for some cortisone but he rejected me real fast. He told me the only way this thing is gonna heal is by doing super light reps until i can build back up and is gonna require at least 4-6 weeks. He also told me that benching in the high 300’s at that powerlifting meet in march is pretty much never gonna happen and even told me to avoid Heavy weights forever.
So now i got a fat ass medical bill, a mildly retarded PT and a mean case of tricep tendonitis. Seriously guys, What should i do? In the next 3 months i have 2 powerlifting meets and 3 combines that all involve heavy benching. Any ideas at all?
