Dr. Lou need shoulder advice,

Back in May I had my right shoulder operated on by an associate of the Fondren Pediatric group.

I was diagnosed with stage three arthritis in my shoulder. From the diagnosis, the collar bone has zero cartilage at the shoulder joint, and I had a bone spur.

They went in arthroscopicly and cleaned out the bone spur, repaired a slight tear, and ground down @ 10mm of the collar bone to increase the gap between it and the shoulder joint.

I was told to let it rest for 6 weeks prior to exercisieng, which was no real problem. I was technically cleared to exercise last week, but took an additional week just to be safe.

Last night I attempted to work out again,

When attempting to do bench press with minimal weight, when I brought the bar down to chest level, I can feel the joint clicking and it was rather painful in the down position.

I re-racked the bar, and removed more weight, eventually I took it all the way down to just the nekkid bar, @ 45 pounds, even with 45 pounds, the clicking is there and it is still painful int he down position, it is as if I stalled out.

Is this normal? I have never had the clicking noise before.

It's got me bummed out, I went from pressing 315 for reps, to nothing, Now my wife bench presses more than me.

Any rehabilitative exercise you would recommend for the shoulder joint, that would also put some emphasis on the pectoral muscle? My doctor didn't recommend any thing, and just said it could hurt for up to 6 months after the surgery,

It's killing me not being able to work out,
I've never had a piece of tail I didn't like, it was the woman attached to it I didn't care for.

You need to undergo a rehab program for your shoulder prior to lifting weights. The rotator cuff muscles must be reactivated before you can exercise your external muscles. They are shut off after injury or surgery. Most of these exercises can be done in minutes with an elastic band. Look up rotator cuff exercised on google to get an idea of what is involved. Do those exercises for about 4 weeks prior to trying to work out. When you go back to working out keep all your bar grips super narrow (shoulder width or less) to minimize shoulder stress. As you get back into it slowly work your grip back out to normal over the next 3-4 months.
