Thanks for the update! I'm glad to hear you are getting close to recovery!!!!

Hello Todd,

As I haven't had much recovery progress I had a video consultation today, to get through this final stage of recovery as quickly as possible I have to stop as much movement with my hands supinated (palm turned upwards towards body) as possible. He feels that doing prolonged movements in that position is antagonising the injury and causing much slower recovery. Unfortunately that means no guitar. Hopefully it will only be a few days as I'm 95% recovered but this final 5% is still preventing chord vibrato so I need to get to 100%..

I'll keep you informed.

Cheers

Phil

Hello Sarge,

Update, I've just tried the SRV lesson and still can't vibrato the chords, I also still can't do the tapping drill in bootcamp with my right hand muting at the top of the neck, I didn't expect to as I still have weakness in my left arm but it is getting better. As always, the last 20% of recovery seems to take 80% of the time for the total recovery. If I flex my left bicep, a lot of it is still soft whereas my right bicep is very firm. This tells me, I think, that many of the muscle fibres aren't being triggered by the related nerves, this has likely caused parts of the bicep to wither. I'll report this finding to the consultant tomorrow, it may need some electro-stimulation which I can do at home at a certain level.

We'll get there.

Cheers

Phil

Was your sign off a clever pun or a typo? wink.gif

To be honest Sarge there isn't much pain, the left arm just isn't responding to nerve impulses at the moment, or rather the necessary nerves aren't being triggered.

We'll get there for sure.

Hello Sarge,


I'm going to start working on strengthening this arm /shoulder for a few days, it's still not perfect but it could take months so I might as well try, the last few % always take the longest or cost the most in practically anything in life.

Hopefully I'll be back in Bootcamp very soon.

Speak soon buddy.

Hello Sarge,

I'm pretty disappointed, tried out my holiday home setup, my shoulder problem seemed much much better but if you watch this video you can see that I still can't slide down the neck whilst holding a chord, even a power chord. I suppose I'll have to get some more help from someone, I think I will need more than a video consultation now which I'm a little bit uneasy about to be honest.

I can try the Bootcamp stuff though as most of that is single note stuff.

Congats on getting back on the horse Soldier! I can see it's still painful. The good news is that like you say, bootcamp has a lot of single note stuff. I think you may need physical therapy which is hard via tele visit. Don't give up soldier!!

Thanks Sarge,

It's not painful to be honest, it just won't work, almost like when someone has had a stroke. That grimace on my face isn't from pain, it's from determination trying to get the hand to move. I can move down the neck easily with one finger but not holding a chord.

The physio that I use and trust is only doing face to face consultations for urgent cases so I'm going to arrange another video consultation with them. It's nearly there now, I just hope it needs specific exercises and not more leaving the guitar alone.

Cheers

One can only try eh Sarge?

Last night I could slide down the neck a couple of frets holding a power chord on my Ibby, I managed it quite a few times in succession, I was a little bit better than before on my MiM Strat (the white one) but it was a no go on my SRV so it is getting better.

I'm waiting for the physio to get back to me re a Skype consultation, they're having to juggle a lot of appointments as they have a couple off sick and there are only four of them in total so we'll see how it goes. Last night seemed promising though so maybe the whole neurological system is spurting back into life smile.gif

Cheers

Phil
