With the lower back problems. Having my wife by my side through all the tests, procedures, surgeries, recoveries, etc. And she's been a "ROCK"!
Now it seems what we thought may just be arthritis. Is more likely to be lower back issues. Exacerbated by bringing in firewood this winter after my last surgery. (I kinda feel like crap!) because of this. :<
She has pains in her lower back, w/ pains going into her hips and radiating down the back of her legs. Right now, for the time being, I have her taking OTC NSAIDS, Ice, and my muscle relaxers.
I have 1 more small surgery on the 14th of April. And then we will be concentrating on her seeing a specialist. I wish it could be my surgeon, but my lower back issues were work comp. And our insurance is "HELL" net. w/ John Muir. The good news is, John Muir is one of the top 5 spinal institutions in California. And she was very pleased with the surgeries on her shoulders. And her care was excelent.
I've been teasing her. We live in the mountains, so I told her we need to find four wheel drive wheel chairs. So we can race up and down the roads when we get older!
She will probabley rely on the experience that I've gained over the many years. But who knows, we may be getting a new member soon..NO! thats no good :jawdrop: she can probably tell all kinds of crap on me!
