Guys, I just found out that I have a torn labrum in my right shoulder. The doc said that I will need arthroscopic surgery to repair the tear. He said that I will most likely be in a sling for 6 weeks and then the rehab will start. He said that it could be up to a year until I begin to start serving again. I am completely devastated by the news, but i realize worst things could have happened. I wanted to get any advice from people who have undergone this surgery. the doc said I will be given a never blocker? and oral medication for the pain. I also wanted to know if it would be ok to smoke pot to ease the pain? On to the fitness questions: I will not be be allowed to do any cardio until the sling is removed. I want to make sure I do not gain weight during my time off, and want to lose weight. Since I will not be able to run or do any resistance training even on my lower body until I get word from the doctor, I need advice on how much I should be eating in order to lose weight. I am 6 feet 195 pounds.
