  • Ron,

    Well, we [I for one] DO appreciate what you do on here. That right there earns a "Brenda HUG" :) I'm not thrilled with what is in my surgical future, but unlike my past nerve and spine surgeries, I have this family!!! YOU are a big part of the family. Thanks again!!

    And... Man-o-man-o does that take the edge off the "OH GOD" stress .... :---) Bigtime!

  • You truly are an inspiration to others. With all that you are going through and have gone through, you are always here for everyone.

    You look at the positives in life including recovery, and I am sure that this has served you well recovering from your shoulder surgeries, as it will in future surgeries.

    My cousin just had a hip replacement a few months ago, and it has been such an incredible transformation for him. The pain and limp from his past went away almost immediately after surgery. He has made a complete recovery.

    In the same way that you are always here for all of us, so too shall we be there for you!

    All of you make me wanted to do more and more. That alone is extremely powerful motivation. Thanks.

    Now, on the home site. I had a Steroid Hip injection on 08/08. As usual, it can take from 3 days up to 3 weeks before you see the results.

    I went back into the therapeutic pool and did my walking and stretching. I was hoping for the better, but unfortunately, I am heading the other way.

    The small bit of exercising I did, really set me back. I talked to the Pain Mgt Specialist that did the injection and he told me to give it a few more weeks, but not to do any exercising.

    Right now, I am finding it difficult to put any weight on my left leg. What used to be using a cane for support and getting up, I am needing the cane just to move around

    I sure am hoping that but not exercising, using more ice and NSAIDS, I will be able to return to where I was before all this started.

  • Maybe like I've found...been getting worse. It is the body saying do something to make this better, or stop the progression?

    My new surgeon warned me tonight in email about being in a car, never mind driving one and then bumped my surgery from 6+ months to 6+ weeks! Maybe your body is trying to move surgery up?

    I'm sorry PT and exercise is hurting more. I just started (not the PT part) going through or better yet experiencing that, and it bites. I hope you have answers soon. As you and I have talked, the answers might not be great, but they are answers so we know what is going on, and what we need to go through to make life better. *HUG*

  • Your positive mental attitude is an inspiration to the rest of us.

    Thank you for all you do for this site and for helping to make it the best place to come for information and support. :-)

    I am pleased to hear how much better your shoulders are now after your surgeries. Hopefully, in the future, you will be telling us how much better your hips are.

    Life certainly deals some difficult cards, but we will play with what we are dealt. Have lots of fun playing Ron! You are a winner! :D
