Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

Read this wfs

Generally, humans dont have hyperplasia of muscles. But if the muscle basement membranes are still in tact (in most cases are) the destroyed muscle fibers will grow back.

Depending on how bad there's going to be persistent muscle weakness anywhere from a couple months up to maybe a year or more.

Rehab obviously is going to be focused on getting good diet and health in order FIRST. Then slowly working back into exercising. Nothing special about it (just not a lot of eccentrics movements or fast movements). Mostly strength work would probably help.

Consult your doc on what diet they want you to do. I would say Paleo is fine but they might want to restrict protein and some other things for a bit just to make sure kidneys are OK. It's expected that there would be elevated liver enzymes after significant muscle trauma though so that's probably not an issue.
