Golf and more golf

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbargo @ 12:07 pm and

Well I couldn’t help it I had to go on the annual golf outing in Northern Michigan.   I was right on 6 weeks post op when I left.   18 holes the first day worked out ok.    I made sure I drove close to the ball….gave up and dropped out of most bunkers or trouble spots (I played a few but it took too much out of me).  A post round of cards and too many beers to count led to day 2….. 36 holes.   I made about 23 then the fatigue really stared to set in so I stopped ….drove the cart enjoyed a few more beers and team jager bomb.

Day 3 was another 36 I knew in the morning if a played 18 that would be a miracle.  Basically I played about every other hole for 18 and called it good.   My good leg was worn out as was my whole body!   But all in all I made it and glad I went.    The next day I had some  pretty big swelling….I iced it went to bed a 8pm and woke up pretty good.  But I am not sure I have ever been as tired as I was that night.

Now that the weekend is gone I think I gave my good leg alot of work.  Today it feels so much bigger and stronger than my bad leg.  My rear end also feels the difference.

I am getting much more comfortable touching and putting cream on my scar.  For some reason I just did not want to touch it.  I kept feeling something a hard.  So I got in good light to investagate.  I found that I has a suture poking out.  I could pull it a little with tweezers but could not pull it all the way out.   I found out it was part of a dissolvable suture…..it doesn’t hurt anything other than it will only dissolve if wet.

So per instruction of a friend in the field….I pulled it with tweezers as far as I could and snipped it.  Low and behold it worked…..    I was feeling so cool I did it I snuck on a pair of shoes and walked around the bedroom  WOW!…   Not suppose to do that for a few more days but could not help it….PT starts next Wed.   My how time flies (well not really but I think you all know what I mean).

  4. Swing is close to normal and pain free….I just swing easy and mostly with upper body but I am playing very similiar to rpior injury.

    I am in a boot with no wwedges and I did get a little bruising from the top of boot at my upper calf.

    I am going to shoes soon but will not golf without the boot for at least another 3-4 weeks or more.

  8. I did use a golf shoe on the other foot. No problem. My new quote is— “you can’t control the injury….but you stop letting the injury control you ”

    Stole that from somewhere on a different topic. ….. Let me know when you try your first round unitl then keep working out.
