The Trollest Of Trolls
sorry to hear about this Jan. your doctor have you on blood thinners? what's the prognosis? forearm strains are VERY common. i was dealing with one a few years ago that i couldn't shake for months.Unfortunately, my fitness regimen has ground to an abrupt halt lately. Last week, I was advised by one of the area's leading doctors in the area of sports medicine to cease all heavy gripping for about a month to give my right forearm a rest. Today, I saw my primary physician for a swollen calf. He believes it may be a deep vein thrombosis (blood clot). This could have fatal consequences. In any event, if I vanish from the forum indefinitely, that's probably what will have happened.
Ironically, yesterday I finally received the 75-pound kettlebell my wife ordered for my birthday in March. It is in the shape of a grizzly bear's head. I just hope I survive to get some mileage out of "Monarch," as I named him in honor of the last California grizzly in captivity. Monarch was put down 106 years ago. He was a big bear, weighed 1,129 pounds, as I recall, although captivity had rendered him somewhat obese.
