... Hi there, No, I am not too sure what this might be. To me it seems as though you should be in contact with your doctor again and find out exactly what kind of program you should be on, as far as weights and workouts go. I'm surprised he didn't recommend a physical therapist. You should also be up front with him and demand answers to your questions and concerns. If you are... (1 replies)
