Good morning all! Cant believe that I slept all night with no drugs - my body must be in shock :confused:

Talking about PT, my therapist treated me for 6 weeks and didn't realize I had a grade 2 spondy - he saw the incomplete MRI report (didn't note the spondy, just a broad based bulge); didn't request the xray report that noted the slip (the doctors office who did the xrays is 20 feet from the hospital); at the time I didn't know enough about my condtion to argue; I told him I could feel bones grating in my lumbar area when I did the exercises and he told me it must be my hip? like you said, I'm not the expert, but do you think it's okay to strap 10 pound weights on my ankles and do 10 reps of 10 different exercises with a grade 2 spondy??? My body said absolutely NOT! 10 weeks. 25 visits, and how many dollars wasted,....grrrrr....Luckily, they were covered by insurance, but we all pay in the end. Anyway, sorry to get on that rant.......

I'm looking to find a good (ie competant) personal trainer in a few months - I want to do our small-town triathlon in October - 4 mile run (in my case, maybe walk), 5 mile kayak, and 12.5 bike ride. Might be a stretch but it's been the motivation so far....My surgeons are cautiously optimistic i can be ready by October, but they're happy that I'm willing to work to get myself back in shape.

Okie, the foot pain is definitely a burn - it was mainly in the right foot until about 3 months ago, now it's usually even between the 2. Some days on the treadmill are worse than others, but always bad when I stand around. (now I know why I was miserable working 12 hour swing shafts walking on concrete).

It feels like it starts around my ankle and radiates to the bottom of the foot - sound familiar? Are you seeing a chiro now? I know a lot of people bash chiros, but mine has been awesome - and he wouldn't touch me until he saw all the films and reports.....hmmmmm. He helped some with the upper back spasms before surgery but said they most likely wouldn't go away until the spondy was lined up and things got balanced out - just what the ortho said at my 2 week visit. Sorry to say I'm getting that pain back ...

I'll post again tomorrow after my NS visit. Everyone have a great day!
