Compressed Nerve

The first Dr. I went to for a pain issue in my right forearm treated me for a separated supinator muscle. The problem persisted and I sought a second opinion from a Dr. in Shreveport La. Due to a "Compressed Nerve" in my right forearm... I am undergoing surgery on thurs. the 17. Lesson learned- Use lift straps for heavy curls, and don't trust small town doctors!

...Because it's Super-Badass!

Hmmmm, I've been curling one armed heavy dumbbells for YEARS without any issues.
I only use straps on back day or for traps.

Sorry to hear about you having to have surgery though.
What kind of weight did you do it on?
My partner just tore his bicep doing one armed preacher curls with 95lb dumbbells.

Compressed nerve in your forearm? How the heck did he diagnose that? EMG? What are your symptoms? He doing a fasciotomy or cubital/carpal tunnel release? Surgeons operate...thats how they make money. Not many surgeons will opt to not do surgery if the option is there.

yeah he did a series of emg "nerve study" tests. the surgery is what he called a posterior nerve decompression. I was having a good bit of pain when i lifted almost anything. even things like as light as a gallon of milk. We ruled out physical damage by a series of x-rays and mri's. Just got home from the hospital from having the procedure actually. Arm hurts like bloody hell but, if the problem goes away it was worth it.
thanks for your genuine concern btw. I really appreciate it.
