Between now and two months from now when I'm able to see an orthopedic surgeon, what exercises can I do in a hotel room with only my body weight that will not aggravate the shoulder injury detailed below any further, and still provide a general upper body workout?
Situational Background Information
I am currently on a business trip to France that will last up to 2 more months. While in the hotel room I have limited available means of exercise. My first morning here I did pushups upon waking and was unable to finish very many of them before experiencing shoulder pain. Throughout the rest of the day and the two days that followed my shoulder has been in a good amount of pain, and I have not done any further upper-body exercising.
Injury Background (SLAP Tear)
I injured my shoulder a number of years ago in the US Marine Corps, and the initial MRI results from the military docs was that I had bursitis in my shoulder. I rejected cortisone shots (due to the side effects explained to me by the doctor) and did some physical therapy exercises that were wholly ineffective. After that, I just dealt with the varying levels of constant mild-to-moderate pain for the next four years.
As the pain has been steadily increasing in intensity and frequency over the last year, I had another MRI and X-ray from a civilian doctor and was told my shoulder is in the following condition:
There is tearing at the base of the superior, posterosuperior, and posterior labrum, extending from the 9 o'clock position of the posterior labrum to the 12 o'clock position of the superior labrum, with small para labral cyst formation along the posterosuperior and superior labrum measuring up to 3mm in size. The tear occurs completely through the base of the labrum, with focal detachment of the labrum without significant displacement. The remainder of the labrum is intact.
The X-ray showed no skeletal abnormalities.
The doctor said, "Well, I see the reason you've been complaining about all this pain," and has referred me to an orthopedic surgeon.
