You aren't kidding about the "maintenance as you get older" thing! My core is weak too, and I'm always looking for new core/back exercises. I'd be interested in hearing more details about those. Do you have some favorites?
HA!!! My PT said his wife, had never learned to engage her TAs and had to go through major rehab to help her with her back!! I guess it is a common problem for some of us!! I'm so glad you have a great PT...I do too and feel so blessed!
He will add the hip and back to the current PT treatment plan. His comment
“It would not surprise me if you were in PT for 6 months to a year. You are going to get one thing fixed and something else along the chain will break because your mechanics were so off. We will get it all fixed....before I do your RTK.”
“Yikes...who said anything about that?” I asked.
“Well, how does the right feel?” he asked. “Because this X-RAY shows the same thing that I told you on the left. Does your right knee act jealous?”
DRAT! He must have ESP..... Mr. Right acts the same as the other one did. No push on stairs especially.
So....we shall see. I would like to visit “The Job Store” but a two month break would be tough to sell to a new employer.
I told my OS he was one of the nicest surgeons I had ever dealt with and that I had sent him 5 people already.
He said “Thanks. One of my colleagues told me that I was a surgeon with the heart of a pediatrician.”
Mr. Knee, luckily, is not the jealous type....because I have forgotten about him! No pain, no drugs, no stiffness, no odd noises, just a scar.
He will be 6 months old Christmas Eve....and I will take him with me when I go to Vegas.
Mr. Right though is quite needy. PT today he “protested” quite vehemently. (2 more PT visits)
Mr. Right will receive an early Christmas gift of a needle and judiciously applied Steroids Wednesday. OS and I are targeting June of 2020 to “reform” Mr. Right, depending on work.
The goal in Vegas is 10K steps per day. (I am only expecting 5k out of each of them ). I have not hit that “magic number” as of yet. Walking is easy in Vegas.....elevators and escalators everywhere.
Yes, and if I get tired, there is always a seat at a table to play cards....
