He recommended going forward my training schedule should be swim a day and take two days off. Ice it after every swim, and I would be better concentrating on sprints since they have shorter swims and would require less swim training and to start doing the strength training exercises I was doing in rehab again. I also contacted the OT that did my rehab and she questioned why they did not give me a cortisone shot and suggest some therapy. She also recommended a week off.
So I wonder if swimming a day and then taking two days off after each swim will give me enough training to be ready for the 70.3, and I wonder if anyone else who has had this surgery, has had a similar outcome and recommendations. I have been happy with the outcome from the surgery overall. It has improved the quality of my life. I just wonder if my expectations of what I was going to be able to do swim wise after the surgery are unrealistic or if I should get a second opinion.
