Degenerative disc disease, which I am sure was a shocker to my physician who was trying to hang it on loose junk in my knee.
I KNOW the pain my back gets in. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.But to have a physician be so blasé’ about it, well, all I can do is shake my head. I am going to hook up with my old orthopedic team, and that was not necessarily by choice.The local orthopedic didn’t want anything to do with me initially because I had two knee replacements done BY ANOTHER PHYSICIAN.
So color me in for tests and schedules and say a little prayer that things come out ok.
I had really rough back pain this week, and then when the orthopedic physician said about arthritis working in the equation, well, the pain in the head worrying about it was almost matching the pain in my lower back.
I forgot one thing. Flip fitness class.
Fortunately my instructor is always looking for feedback and ways that participants in the class feel that they can get more out of it, or benefit from it.I made it a point to let Jackie know about my back and we worked more core and stretches.It was insane, because I started the class feeling lousy, and left pretty well loosened up. Movement may start out as painful, but when you get things moving, it’s incredible how different you feel.
The funniest thing was we had some good laughs in class tonight, and my buddies and I laughed so hard there were tears coming out of our eyes,Fortunately Jackie is a good sport, because as much as we tried to stop laughing, we couldn’t….after all, laughter is the best medicine!
