Hi brains:)

Sounds like it's making progress, hope it keeps improving, maybe gentle movements may help.

I'm getting my bathroom renovated at the moment, so no showers for a while.  ;)

Say hi to your Mum & a hug for Tia.  :D

That sounds like progress a bit at a time, but I know it must be frustrating.

I'm having problems with my neck & shoulders still with my trapped brachial nerve & lost a lot of strength these days,
but still do as much as I can.

I'm smiling a lot better now with new uppers.  ;D

Take Care.  :)

Yes it also means whether you can fit the wheelchair in the car, sounds like quite an effort.

My little Micra is very easy to drive & park etc. compared to the large Commodore, it also has side airbags which is much safer.

I'm having problems with my neck & shoulders still with my trapped brachial nerve & lost a lot of strength these days,
but still do as much as I can.

Take Care.  :)

Just popped in here to be nosy .... ;D
Yvonne, what med's do you get given for your painful neck and shoulder ?
I only say this because I woke up one Friday morning a couple of years ago, and had trouble getting out of bed (not that it is unusual.... :)), and had to wait until Monday to get an appt. with the quack.
I was prescribed Tramadol, utterly useless and did nothing for the lower back pain, and made me feel like crap, then it was Zapain, which again was just as useless, on the third visit a few weeks later, I was give Gabapentin.
Now that worked pretty quickly on the usual 3 per day, and after about a week, I weened myself off them like 2 per day, one per day, and then none at all.
They worked brilliantly, and as was soon skipping about like a new lamb........well, actually bumbling about like a lost one............but felt very much better and best of all......no more pain in the back.

Whether these would work on you I don't know, as I am no Dr. Watson - although the name is the same  :) - but would it be worth asking ?

Perhaps you just need a good rub down with baby oil..... :blush:
I intend to live forever. So far, so good - But, too many Birthdays can kill you.

Hi Baron:D
fancy finding you here,  :D

I only take pain killers when the pain gets bad, I take Efexor to relax the muscles a bit & know when I forget one.
I see a chiropractor & He wrings my neck,  :D .... my knee is playing up now so will have to get the lower back adjusted again.

I've been recommended Elmer oil for painful muscles by SIL. so will have to give it a try.  ;)

I only popped in here to see what you were up to............. :gig:

Oh dear, that sounds very annoying and painful...

I also got given some 'heat' cream for the back, but didn't make a lot of difference either.
I even got sent to a pin Doctor....acupuncture ....for a few sessions, with this Chinese therapist, which didn't do a lot for me either, and boy, did she have strong fingers with her manipulations with my knackered body !  :o
But it was something different to try, and with needles shoved into my back in various places, I started to look like a hedgehog...

But, I guess all you can do is grin and bear it, and enjoy the relief when the pain killers kick in.

How long have you suffered like this.....some time I guess ?

I wish you luck and relief from pain... :flowers:

Sorry to hear you've had a lot of pain also with not much relief,  :(
they tried acupuncture on me to no avail also; I've had these problems for over 30 years,
back to the chiropractor today for my knee.

I was pulling out some dead grass fronds yesterday (a bit like swordgrass) & about 1/2 an inch long splinter went into my thumb,
I couldn't pull it out as it was against the flow, so off to the doctors & the 6 tries of needles for the local into the thumb were very painful,
she had to cut it out.

That will teach me to wear gloves.  :D

Oh dear...... :flowers: :flowers:

I have experience that sword grass when I was out in Brisbane. I thought it would be just nice long grass, and didn't have my trainers on..............after a lot of 'ooowwwwing' and 'groaning', I deceided there and then that I would never do that again, because that grass is lethal, and not as nice natured as I though. This confirmed my belief that just about everything in Australia is designed to sting me, bite me, and stab me wherever it could.
My brother thought it hilarious, and laughed his head off, and called me a 'wuss' and other words of concern for my health.... :o ;D

30 years is a very long time, and you must have been quite young when that set in..... :-*

I guess acupuncture was worth a go, for us, but no real results.
I was also asked on my last session to rate out of 10 how I think things went.
I lied a bit, so rather say a score of about 3, I made it 8....I didn't want to hurt her feelings....especially with those strong hands of her, she might throttle me with one hand...

Yep, messing about in my back garden, I always forget to wear a pair of gardening gloves, and when fighting with my apple tree to lop off some dead little branches, and some bigger ones higher up, the tree fights back and stabs my hands, and having very thin skin on the back of them now, I end up with many wounds, and then think 'It's bit late for gloves now', and wander into the kitchen to dig out some sticky back plasters, to stem the surprised amount of my blood flowing from the torn skin.
I also noticed that the packet was about 4 years out of date, but hey ho, they did stick on to the skin and gave me a bit of protection from my usual trick of accidentally scraping the back on something.

The skin is so thin these days, that if I turn my head to sneeze, it will just give me bruises, and sometimes break the skin to make me bleed............oh the joys of getting ancient.... ;D

Anyway, good luck on your visit to the bone Doctor, and hope it gives you some relief.... :hat3:

Well we're not spring chickens any more are we,  ;)

I was contemplating getting rid of the bougainvillea that has died over our long dry spell,
but thought I should avoid the long thorns for now, then dead heading the roses I got caught on thorns anyway.  ::)

I had an update on a Tetanus & Whooping cough vaccine yesterday also, as I told her the neighbour's cat pees on the garden.  :laugh:

The chiropractor seems to have eased the knee a bit, might take a week or so for the muscles to adjust now.

We have so many first aid things that are many years old, even some headache tablets are 4 years old, will have to check if they are safe now.

Have to mow the lawn again tomorrow, maybe I should wear goggles too.  :gig:

It's like sitting in a Doctors surgery waiting to be called in..........discussing all our age induced aches and pains........ ;D

Glad you knee is enjoying a bit of relief..

As for gardening, don't forget a hard hat with visor, Hi-Viz jacket, thick gloves, knee pads, warning signs all over the garden, and paramedics standing by........ ;D   :flowers:
I keep trying not to look at the grass and weeks which are still growing..........slowly thank goodness, and thinking I really should get the mower out for the front and back.........yet if it is nice and sunny and warm, I dig out the sunbed for its storage bin, and settle down with my book, and ignore it all...
I intend to live forever. So far, so good - But, too many Birthdays can kill you.

Well I did the front lawn, only the back to do now; I've tried to dig out the row of japanese bamboo (nandina) but the roots are deep & tough,
will have to get a gardener.  ::)

I've developed thrombosis in my upper thigh & have to inject blood thinners into my belly every day for a month or more,  ::)
I'll look like a pin cushion.  ;)

You certainly have been in the wars, do you have a problem with balance ?
your leg muscles could be getting weak, maybe some physio would help.  ???

I've just been walking up to vote, glad that's the end of all the campaigning now.  ::)

Just one more injection to go & that will be finished too thankfully.
