Well… I thought I’d give a brief update though not much has changed in the past 6 months. I’m still playing hockey a few times a week, doing yoga and pretty much anything I wasn’t able to do pre-surgery. Having said that, I refuse to lift anything “heavy”. 34lbs is the most I’m lifting now and that is my 3 year old daughter!
We finally sold the house, paid off the back surgery and moved out to the burbs. 🙂 The move/lifting went off without a hitch.
I’ve found another slight decrease in pain when I sit crouched or cross legged for a long time after getting up quickly… this happened around December. No clue how, but it was a welcome feeling. Again, I’m not 100% pain free, but I feel great.
I’ve halted the gluco/chond/msm pills because of a study posted on ADR support about it actually wrecking discs instead of helping. I’m erring on the side of caution right now even though it did relieve some knee/shoulder pain for me with prolonged use.
I hope everyone else is doing well! 😉
