Small fracture. I've had this for years it seems and I've ignored the symptoms due to stubbornness. Having titanium rods in my forearm from a few years ago, you'd think I'd be more cautious? Eh nope lol

Having full panel done on blood with gh, igf and test panel. Will be having an MRI done on upper body from shoulder to shoulder and including mid low back as well.

Told the doc it's time for a major tuneup. This young fella needs to make sure i'm healthy all around. After all this is said and done, we'll move to the conversation of having another child.

I'll take pics later. The injury is on the point of the elbow. Healing? Ummmm cortisone shots or pain meds which both I refused.

Healing is resting the entire arm (s) for 8 weeks no lifting, umm sure not doing that. However what I've been doing is lifting less upper and switching more to legs.

Say what you want, but I only train legs once every 10 days or so. They get get too big too fast and currently I've got them in perfect size and shape for how I train and run.

But seems I'm going to be doing more legs, oh well...

I normally don't practice what I preach when it comes to injuries, sad but true. Remember when I tore my pec a few years ago? Well part of that tear was also ruining my rotator cuff lol. Just getting it done to make sure I haven't made it worse. One of the issues that led into thayt injury was because I had degenerative tissue wear, severely. Most of this health check up I'm doing as opposed to my other ones in the past. Well being 41yrs young, I wanna make sure ALL of me is good to go and if not, let's tackle the issue now.

So you ride B's ass for his AAS use because he needs to go about it the "healthy way" and then it comes time for you to listen to the docs and you don't. lol

AAS usage has zero to do with my injury and I agree, if it's not affecting me terminally, then I'll keep bucking the system.

I do plan on taking SOME time off or adjusting my training.

i'm kinda lost. your talking about making sure your healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle yet when the doc finds problems you reject treatment and refuse rest. do you think the problem will get better with your course of action bro? address and fix the issue now. do not let it get worse and become a major problem.

Agreed and no argument what so ever.

Will I take the needed time off? No...not gonna take 8 or 10 weeks of no upper by movement. However if it meant that my life is on the line, no question I'd follow protocol.

But it's an elbow, not my life or anything major. If it came down to needing surgery then I'd get it the surgery and rest, but no surgery is needed....yet.


Listen guys, I know I heavily preach to all to be healthy and feel good, I know. I'm guilty of not taking my own advice.

I'll do some adjustment but not a full rest, ah ah nope

Seeing an orthopedic next week, fucking doc just called me to schedule it...I need to think smart and stop being an idiot I guess....Otherwise I'm gonna regret it. Hopefully the ortho will shine a better light for me. I'll post results on full blood work and results from my MRIs soon.

Good call brother. You can be a Ronnie or you can be a Levrone...

Think of it like that.

Gotta force yourself to think calm and relaxed and tell yourself that your healing. Otherwise you will continue to destroy yourself.

Yea man...been thinking more all day. I'm stubborn to the point that it ruins certain of my decisions. As I've gotten older, I've tried to tweak that a bit. I preach like a mofo on us being healthy and shit. I should take into consideration that I need rest; a smart thing to do.

It's not like I'm being told NOT to train...i'm being told to give my arms a rest for a while to heal.

Kinda excited to see the Orthopedic though, I've always like their profession

In the grand scheme of things 8 weeks isn't much and you'll hate yourself if you have constant debilitating elbow pain 10 years from now for the rest of your life. If you won't stop to recover eventually your body will make you stop.

I sucked up a lot of "minor" injuries over the years in the Army so I wasn't considered a (broke dick) and always lead from the front. I had the mentality that I could just take it easy and work thru it attitude. While I may of thought it was the right decision at the time ....I am paying for it now. Take the time to let it heal now bro or it will cause more issues later down the road and 10 years from now you will realize what Im talking about. But then it'll be too late...

I agree.


I plan on taking 2 weeks off upper body. I still plan on running and doing legs. I will also do some db lateral and Flys just to keep things woken up.

Neither of those 2 exercises affect directly my elbow.

I see ortho on wed and from there I will start a rest.

2 weeks off is nothing at all bro. especially considering your still going to do other things. gotta get out of that mindset. it's exactly the mindset I had until I literally worked myself into the hospital.

again I'll bring up levrone. guy took off 3 months per year!

I've been off almost 7 weeks and I'm just now really starting to feel mentally and physically healed.

Think of how long it took you to get your injury. You really think 2 weeks will fix things? It's like a fat guy that took 20 years to get fat and goes on a diet for 2 weeks expecting to come out of it with abs.

Yes. I'm on deca and gh and I've still taken 7 weeks off. You kind of joke about the whole thing but brother your either gonna be smart and heal or your gonna be forced out of the game. Don't think for 1 second that your injury can't get 10 times worse. You can say all you want about determination and never giving up but if your arm starts feeling like it's gonna snap everytime you lift determination means fuck all. Be smart with determination. That's the key. Stupid determination will only destroy you.

Rado, you ignore your joints at your peril. Whether it is the rotator cuff, the elbow or the knee, joint issues will make the rest of your life miserable if you don't pay attention to them. Your body is telling you something, listen to it.

I'll know more today....if he says take time off, so be it bah....definetly will take the docs advice.

Crossing my fingers here that it's not too long of a rest, but highly doubt it.

And the therapy consists of Interferon physiotherapy. No surgery will be needed.

Those fucking braces are pricey...funny I could spend money on whatever but certain things I'm a cheap ass.
