Tendonitis, Rotator Cuffs, and Changed Physiology



Recommended Posts

Hey! I'm almost 3 years out, +- 200 lbs down. Close to starting plastics. However, I've been experiencing some sore shoulders and in the last few years I've had sore knees and a sore hip. Tendonitis seems to be a thing for me now. I've been swimming and cycling for the most part, and have been crappy at doing weight training. The latest is having to do a bunch of PT on my shoulders due to calcification and tendonitis in the rotator cuffs. I'm guessing that having lost 200 lbs (HW: 410, CW 208), my gait and general biomechanics have changed quite a bit, as well as having lost muscle (stupid me for not keeping up with weight training), and this adds up to tendonitis and joint issues. Has anyone else experienced some hangups with their joints due to, say, your arms hanging in a much more "normal" position post WLS? I'm seeing an orthopedic dr soon, but I'm guessing that the answer will be more stretching, yoga, and strength training.

Maybe stretching or strength my hunch is now with general better health previously taxed areas are more easily noticed. Glad you have an apt with Ortho.

This is interesting. I have frozen shoulder on the left and nerve impingement on the right and my shoulders don't have full range of motion right now. Never thought about it being weight-loss related. Very interesting.
