Maaay have overdone it. Back did not like what I subjected it to but rather than pain it just generally feels a bit compacted in the upper area with a very mild but not overbearing burning sensation. The kinda thing where I bet I'm gonna wake up in agony and/or paralysed tomorrow.

You know what they say, no pain no gain xD

Btw, what exercise did you do to get your back aching? I usually do a few planks and need to ensure you have a straight line to not leave your back susceptible.

When I put that one deadlift picture on facebook back in December loads of people immediately started messaging me to try and tell me I should change to this work out schedule or that lifting pattern or start eating 9000 calories of cheese burgers a day. One person messaged to tell me that I should hire a PT because its the best investment they ever made, another person messaged me to say all PTs are crooks and no one should even consider getting one. Now I basically keep it to myself because everyone on earth that ever picked up a barbell or saw a stick of chalk thinks that they are a phd qualified sports scientist. Mention to your friends that think they lift that you have back pain from lifting and see how long it takes for them to start correcting you on your lifting form without ever even seeing you in the gym.
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

Yeah, the whole scene is just "you're doing it wrong brah!" Granted, there are wrong ways to do things but really it's better to trust those professionals who can provide scientific rationale such as Mark Rippetoe and not just any old douche.

I definitely must have done something wrong though, ever since said session I referred to above, I've had mild discomfort sleeping and woken up with pain in my lower back (though hard to tell if it's that or the kidneys) which has decreased somewhat. It's hard to tell whether it's just prolonged DOMS or if I've legit done unto myself. Hopefully the former because I've set myself a much more structured routine this year.

I do feel that where gym stuff is concerned, it's mostly just attempts at a money grab, because the only "big secret" to Health and Fitness is that there fucking isn't one, and moderation and consistency are the only real ways to improve shit.

Kinda similar to nutrition, where you see conflicting information come out of various professionals every fart's end.

Obviously there are some things which work a little bit better, or foods that are a little bit healthier, but I am yet to see any "superfood" or "super workout" worth even half the hype.

My PT has advised on general calorie/protein/carb/fat intake per day. Obviously not an exact science but I'm struggling to hit the protein mark.

On top of that my stomach issues that went away are unfortunately returning. My diet wasn;t exactly shit but over the past few weeks I;ve increased protein a bit, cut out alcohol and general shite so it can't really be that seeing as this been returning sporadically for a few months.

As lovely as this sounds I'm fed up of getting an uncomfortable stomach followed by vicious sulphur belches.

On the health side, my surgery that was cancelled on the 6th is still on track to go ahead on the 31st. I'll be glad to get it over and done with, I can't live with the pain much longer. I'll cry if they cancel it again.

On the fitness side, the recommendation is six weeks after abdominal surgery before resuming exercise. :(

Rang for a GP appointment with a specific time request and they booked me in for an appointment next Tuesday. What is this sorcery, last time I had to wait 3 weeks :lol: ...by which time the original problem had gone and another had surfaced.

Body has figured out what exercise is again after starting running in the mornings a couple of weeks ago. Feeling pretty good about it. Also started doing some free weights again at home to get some tone back. Not sure if there is enough time to commit to going to the gym again, but it's nice to have dropped at least a couple of inches around the waist.

That sounds 100% like what happened to me. Are you doing a particularly intense ab workout? For me the strain was what did it, I think I damaged the esophageal sphincter from doing lots of hanging leg raises.

Was an awesome exercise though, lead to me being the best at planking in the whole gym

I've really not been on a high ab workout, I've started beasting it recently but this issue has been happening for a while. I can mainly attribute it to the increase in protein and my body basically going "what the fuck are you putting into me?!"
