Got my MRI results back :( (10-12 weeks out)
So its been 2 weeks since my accident, still in pain. Finally got to see what the MRI looks like from last time. The doctor said I have a very serious partial tear of the supraspinous rotator cuff muscle, one of the worst they have seen while still maintaining thickness and not pulling away. They showed me all the fluid buildup inside of the supraspinous. They said that surgery is not required given that it is still connected (barely), but I shouldn't lift ANYTHING over shoulder height for 10-12 weeks, and then I should start out at a 1/4 of what I am used to. I dont really know why I am posting this here other then that I am totally fucking bummed. I really dont want to follow those orders, but he said at this point it could become a complete tear very very easy, and then I am looking at 6-8 months recovery after sugery.
What would you guys do about diet and excercise. I am 220lbs or so, had about a 500-550 squat (except the one that got me), 500 dead, 370 bench. I am sure when I come back its all going to have gone way down, but I dont know which workouts I can still do (of course doc said non), and how I should be eating to not get fat (since my workout used to help prevent that), and how much cardio I should do without sacrficing more muscle then I have to.
Thanks in advance.
