Thanks Stud and  I'll definitely check it out.  It's crazy when a big old boy has problems holding a cup of coffee with his right hand.

I just ordered one from Amazon Prime so I should have it in a couple days. Yesterday I bought a cheap (Ace) wrist support from Rite Aid and it did help.  When I took it off last night the pain returned.  My wife's a golfer too so the next time her wrists flares up she can check mine out.

They seem to come faster and easier these days of old age.

Right forearm, trying to pull a darned sewer snake out of a lateral...

And I was just getting back from strained elbow tendons on the same arm!

Geeeez

I re-upped on the wrist power. Went for white this time since it's summer. My kids love tugging on my bracelet so the old one got stretched out. Still, I'm glad I got it. Not sure if it helps the wrist pain but I've been able to wear it 24/7 (including showers) and it hasn't gotten on my nerves so

Also, I spotted a wrist widget in the wild today. A lady in the pro shop was rocking a gray one before heading out for her round. She had a pretty good idea of wearing a wristband under it. That was my biggest gripe while I wore it: the Velcro edges were uncomfortable on my dainty skin. Luckily, I haven't had to go back to wearing one yet this year even though I've been smashing range balls like a madman.

I have been dealing with pain in my right tricep area for a couple weeks now. Doesn't seem to want to go away. I am okay until I try to pick something up with my right hand.

My left ankle was great today. Played 18, rode 45 min on stationary recumbent bike then walked around neighborhood for 30 minutes.

It is good to see the many guys are recovering from some nasty injuries.  I am having back problems and now getting shots and chiropractic care.  I am 73 and still in good shape and have a 4 cap. I have shot my age a few times at 71 and 72 but the back is not working and golf has not been much fun. I do not want any surgery as I have had too many..maybe 7 on my left leg, both knees replaced, prostate cancer, open heart and gall bladder.  I was wounded twice in combat as a Marine officer in Vietnam and am 100% disabled by the VA.  Golf has been important in my life as I played professionally (mini tours) when I was young and still have my card.  I am still in the golf business but I am afraid my playing days might be coming to an end.

I'm out for a couple of days. Seems as though the drive to Indy and back aggravated something caused by the heavy lifting at Lowes. The Doctor seems to think I have some nerve inflammation in the L1 nerves that go into the groin. Very painful to walk and laying down and getting up from bed is a bit of a nightmare as it also affects the pubic region (not the nads you clowns, the area above it).

 

They took x-rays of my lower back to check for a herniated disc as well and sent me home with Percocets and steroids.

You sure this wasn't a SnakePit related injury in Indy?

OK, so, another kick to the plums was apparently in order.

 

X-ray revealed degenerative disc disease of the L5-S1. That's why I have lower back pain quite a bit and why long drives leave me worse for wear.

 

Annnd, just for s#$ts and giggles, they saw a large calcium deposit but can't tell if it's in my kidney or not...but I'll say not because I have no symptoms at all of kidney stones. But to "be on the safe side" I have to get an ultrasound and blood test tomorrow...hope I'm not pregnant!

Sorry about the back issue. Maybe micro surgery?

Wow, that sucks.

 

What's the prognosis for the back? Is there anything you can do to slow the degeneration? Physical therapy, etc.?

 

Good luck on the tests tomorrow!
