Recovering from injury

Right, first post ever. Go easy...
I was a dedicated bodybuilder but then I suffered a dislocated shoulder (non-workout related, not really really bad form) so it's been about 2 yeards since I last lifted weights. I had an operation on the shoulder and am currently doing physio. Lost a load of weight (5'8" and went from 12 stone/170lbs to 10 stone/140lbs) to unfortunately.

What I'd like to know is as I am only doing physio, no cardio yet either, is there anything I can take to help aid my recovery? And is it worth taking a mass gainer without hitting the gym, or woud I just put on loads of fat that wil be a pain to shift.

Thanks guys.

Joe

    Ive dislocated both my shoulders and had the said operation on each, the latest of which was 5 months ago, ive just finished my physio and easing back into the gym, id recommend keeping your diet really clean and protein intake high, wouldnt touch weight gainers just whey will do.

    How you finding your rehab? its a tough time

    Sorry for the delay...
    physio is long and frustrating. I've been out for two years at least so not only am I really out of shape from a muscular perspective but my cardio is just awful. I dislocated and redislocated my right shoulder times and each time I lot more hope that I would ever get in the gym again. I developed a Hills Sachs lesion so altjough I was still big and strong, any move like a shoulder press and it could pop out. So I just gave up basically, and waited for the operation.

    Would whey be woth it without training?

    I would just supplement with whey protein and consume a good diet until you're back training properly
