I don't have much to tell you, but let me just give you a piece of advice. About 2 months ago, I tore my rotator cuff and dislocated my shoulder, I didn't want to take the doctor's advice b/c I was a total gym rat so I kept working out in a kind of half-assed way. BIG MISTAKE. It took much, much longer for me to get back to normal, with physical therapy, etc. and it still hurts sometimes, although I havent done any kind of upper body work since then. If you are wanting to do cardio/core stuff, I cannot recommend spinning enough, as that is what got me through the period when I couldnt even lift my arm, but please, you will thank yourself if you just let it get better asap instead of irritating it.
lol. will stop preaching now. sorry. have you talked to a physical therapist? they may be able to give you some toning/workouts specifically tailored to your injury if you really want to do upper body stuff. good luck!
