I really bit the dust after fracturing my l5 and the surgery to fix it, didnt help getting pregnant 6 month later and having a baby. I put on about 50 lbs which has in turn caused me more back pain (upper and lower) and other joint pain and have had recent shoulder surgery. I occasionally ask for a rx for pain meds (when it's really bad) cause I can't take much else but don't want back in that cycle.
I know this is a chronic pain forum, so I figured I may get some good answers.
What do you do for activities that don't increase your pain or that help with the pain?
Swimming is a God send but we live in a rural area and only have a membership for an outdoor pool, open in the summer.
I need to decrease my pain and maybe as a bonus take some of this weight off. Any help is much appreciated.
