    Oct 31 I get my pacer changed, so I'll have no use of my right arm for a while.
    I plan to keep lifting, strapping weight to my belt and squatting between boxes, maybe use the machines a bit, do light cardio, and possibly isolate tri's and bi's in machines for high reps after about a week.
    Shrugs are out because they pull the pecs up.
    External rotations of the humerus are out, obviously.
    Week 2 may see some reverse pec deck work, and/or pulldowns, light.

    I welcome any ideas I haven't mentioned. I may even duct tape over the area to stabilise the incision more when hitting the gym. I figure a month to get back to real lifting, but if healing is too slow, more.
