Back pain… update and more.

I started Physical Therapy 4/25, and have been to three appointments, tomorrow is another; and the last we have scheduled.

I saw an Ortho doctor 4/28, and got some steroids and nerve pain medicine, and some more X-Rays. I have a little more movement, as I think my muscles have calmed down, but the pain is still in my back. I ran a few errands on Saturday so I don’t know if I overdid it or what.

The Ortho doc said to call back and get in if it’s not any better; so I called this morning and have an appointment tomorrow.. The drive in this morning, I swear every bump and pot hole jostled me just enough that I was over it. I am walking so much better but its like I feel a click, it’s the strangest. Sitting for a while then getting up is quite a task, but I’m trying to get up every half hour or so at work.

I really would like to avoid surgery, however Google research makes it seem like it’s a possibility. It’s never a good time for that, but Joe is having shoulder surgery next week, and the new employee is still getting oriented. I COULD do some work from home, especially after a few days; I think. I’m over here planning for IF and I don’t even know if it’s something in the picture yet. I guess that’s the planner in me.

I have a cleaning lady come every 2-3 months, and I’m thankful she is coming tomorrow. I might be a bit embarrassed at how much I’ve not been able to do this last 3 weeks, but it is what it is.
