    Stitches and Training

    Been awhile since ive been on here,

    Had a bad accident with a glass mirror that cut me down my arm just below my tricep that needed 11 stitches. So far ive been out of the gym completely besides a couple minor cardio days. No tendons or muscles were hit just skin fortunately enough. The doc said take the stitches out around 10 days, so far im at day 12 of recovery and will probably pull the stitches in a day or two. Overall im just curious if anyone has had any experience or medical advice on how long until i can start hitting the weights hard again? My understanding is that at 10 days they arent worried about the wound opening up again, however physically looking i would not feel comfortable lifting yet. It appears i am recovering well though and am thinking maybe 2-3 weeks until i should be cleared to lift. I will not be going back to the hospital to get my stitches out since my girlfriend is a nurse, and again they never gave me word nor did i ask this question when getting stitched up at the time. Anyone have any general thoughts or general experience regarding this matter?

    And to add, i can lift many things up to id say 30 pounds in my hand without any issue currently or pain

    It really comes down to is the wound fully healed and as you stated how much pain/discomfort you have.

    I had stitches in my hand. I was able to work out almost immediately after they came out after 2 weeks. If its a deeper wound it may take more time but if its mainly surface just go with your gut if the wound starts opening up or its dreadfully painful stop. Just make sure if you go to a public gym or get a ton of sweat in it to use dial anti-bacterial soap or something similar to keep it 100% clean if it isnt fully healed and scabbed over.

    I broke my collar bone, had surgery, and I was back in the gym in 8 weeks. That's on the extreme side of things but it depends on how bad the wound was. I would probably wait at least a couple of weeks.

    The blood is dried up around it, i have pretty good mobility now just cannot bend my elbow fully yet. Hard to tell if the wound is fully sealed or not

    I was thinking safely 3 weeks would be good. I did not need surgery thankfully

    I think 3 weeks will be plenty of time.

    likewise, planning a nice test cycle to help gain some fullness and muscle back that i may lose over the time. Just in two weeks time i look much softer, its killing me

    Yea then id wait a few weeks.

    No sense in opening it up again and dealing with more stitches.

    So even if you cant bend you elbow all the way can you still do say a pull up or push up and just stop prior to where it really starts pulling?
