I definitely trusted the "trainer" in my gym a little too much I think in doing these exercises, but as well, when I had a light hit to test my shoulder last week I felt the pain too. I think I was crazy to have done the gym work (I didn't do the lat pulldown in back anyway) but now I have definitely learned not to do that again. On the positive side, which I can start to see now, I know better what I need to do for rehab and I am staying well away from the cortisone.
And yes charliefedererer, I will be getting ready for Paddy's Day (as we call it here). Or tennis club may even be marching in our local parade. Oh, and I will definitely be having a guinness and making a toast to you and all you great guys who have given me fantastic advice and moral support!
