    Just got back from my physio session an hour ago (ish).


    I can go back to the gym!!! Result!


    I can do weights (but lighter ones). I can get back on my bike (as long as I stick to the road for now, no off-roading). I am freeeeeee!


    Seriously, he was very pleased with my progress and with all of the work I've obviously been doing (every day, three times a day) to get myself better.


    One more week of the medication at it's lowest level and that's it, I am done with being 'sick'.


    Of course I will take it easy, of course I will listen to my body, of course I will not try and do too much.


    I absolutely never want to have to go through that again.

    Score!


    I just had a session with a Crossfit coach and got my "form" on some lifts fine tuned, went down in the weights I lift. Just may have prevented an injury and am glad to have my position/form analyzed and tweaked. Seems good to check and re-check things (workouts, nutrition, sleep, all that Primal Jazz) from time to time.


    I didn't read what got you injured in the first place, but so glad you got it licked!

    Thanks all.


    @DR - or indeed, Grok On! hehe...


    @Acmebike - general wear and tear, lots of sitting in an office - getting older... No, I didn't have a specfic event that caused it, just an accumulation. But I think it's great that you've taken care of your form and dropped the weights a notch - that really could make the difference. I used to lift quite heavy things, so I'm having to really, really scale it back. Frustrating, but so much the best thing to do.


    Revisiting everything you do is good - a spring clean, no matter what time of year!

    Wonderful news!! (And so glad to see you're back -- I knew you missed us -- hee.)


    I am going to see another neurosurgeon next month about getting these rods out. I am hopeful that they might come out. Nothing like being horribly injured to make you realize how much you've been taking your body/health for granted....

    @ggg - Thank you and thank you


    Oh good luck with your neurosurgeon visit. I wasn't horribly injured, unlike yourself, but the pain really gave me a kick in the backside to not take things for granted. Now, I really appreciate the fact that I can walk properly (and actually better than I could even before I ended up getting really bad), and also stand up straight. I was leaning to the left and also hunched forward (how attractive!).


    You take care x

    Wow! I must say, I feel extremely lucky to have recovered so quickly. It's not 100% yet, but 95% is good enough to build on and regain my strength that I've lost.
