    Ok a week ago my Back wasn't giving me any trouble even though I knew it could. I did an hour Deep Water Aerobics and an hour and half swimming. I had in past been doing an hour with Weights and an hour doing Senor Citizens Work Out, just stretching and moving.

    I came home went to water the Garden, pulled on Hose and the Lord says quit. Messed my Back up again I have not been able to do anything since. Getting up and down hurts, once up or down I don't hurt. I'm using a Cane to push with.

    I don't see hunting or fishing by myself at this time. Thinking I could go by myself and have someone on call if needed or have someone take me out and come when called. Could have someone set with me but then both of us are not really happy because I like being by myself and they have other stuff they rather be doing. That's if it comes to this. I'm not getting better I'm getting worse.

    Going to try and get in to see the Doctor he already told me 6 months ago Work Out if I can but what is happening now will probably happen.

    Ok at the YMCA I have help getting in and out of the Pool. Does messing around in the Pool Help? I've heard both on this as far as Joints. Just need to be able to change into my Swimming Trunks and getting to the Pool.

    Ok might be worrying about nothing could wake up and all's good but could wake up and all is worse I guess just thinking ahead.


    :D Either way the Big Grin is here.

    This won't I've had the problem for 15 years and my Doctor already told me this would happen.

    Can't exercise Abs much because I have a Large Hernia I done tried and it about put me in the Hospital. Was told exercise Back and Abs would catch up. That was before this.

    Just see what my Doctor says again.

    One time they was talking about a Hip Replacement but they are afraid I will die so they just soon not. Almost died on them 4 years ago operating on me on a half hour deal. Half Hour situation turned into a three and half hour operation. Then spent two days trying to keep me alive. The Doctor was actually surprised I lived.


    :D The Big Grin can kiss her butt.

    Yes I know it could change just like that. I sure as heck don't want to be in the woods and have this happen. That is why I try and make sure my wife knows exactly where I am but over time she don't listen.

    And not good to go to Internet for any advice whether it be Health, Legal or anything else that is why there is so called experts out there :confused:


    :D Then you have the Big Grin.

    Some sage advice I once got.

    I told a doctor of some discomfort I was getting because of something I was doing.

    He looked me right in the eye and said "quit doing it" .

    The end. :D

    That's good advice! I have a friend that rides his mule while coon hunting and was having a problem with his hip hurting. He took his wallet out of his hip pocket and problem solved no more hip pain. :wave:

    Oneshot, I hope that some rest and recoup give you some relief. :)

    How long have you been with your present Dr. ??? Nothing wrong with getting another opinion/different options ...

    Been with him 6 months the only other option was going to take me a year to get an appointment this is really a good Doctor. Well I've been told he is the Best.

    He took me off a couple Medications. Did Blood Work on me and everything with that was very good.

    Told him I was Working Out and Swimming. He said this was the best thing for me if I could do it. Doctor before him told me the same. Doctor before that if I was still with them I would be dead now from Cancer.

    Been dealing with my Back for years, it was so Bad I couldn't get out of Bed. I was working and I would go down, there was nothing I could do.

    Went to several Specialist and everyone said basically there was nothing that could be done. They was in Springfield, Columbia, Jefferson City and Tulsa.

    The way it is I can't find another Doctor and why I'm happy with him.


    :D The Big Grin sees oneshot working like a Dog. Yes laying around scratching every so often.
