I would be your wet dream...lol.

 

I have two junk shoulders and a back with L2 and 5 compression fracture/s. Other than Bourbon.... can you help?.lol.

Bourbon is better than the Hydrocodone, fentanyl, and morphine that my wife was on before her L5-S1 fusion 12 years ago.  Now it's just vodka for her.

I understand. Fortunately, I'm a big fan of Bloody Marys. 😉

I just turned 60 in September, but I still feel like I'm 20............ except for all the new things that hurt every time I get out of bed.

Except for the knee problems I had, I would love to be 60 again.  After replacement my knee feels great, but the rest of me hurts.  I hate to tell you, but it's worse at 70.

I hated my physical therapist when I had my knee replaced.  He made me do things that hurt!!  But in the end it was worth it, because I can play pain-free... in my knee.  The rest of me, not so much!  😆

You know what PT Stands for---- Pain and Torture! 😉  I'm glad youre doing well and playing pain free!

Lol hang in there. A lot of the times just keeping it mobile with stretches ect is helpful. I love the doorway stretch for shoulders, and the pitcher stretch-- pulling your arm across your body. Additionally just lying on your back and letting knees fall out to each side improves tissue mobility in the low back without much increase in symptoms. Probably more than you were looking for but I hope it may help!  🙂

Them Huey pilots saved my buddies ass many times.  He served in Vietnam (70, 71, and part 0f 72) as a LRRP with H Co 75th which was attached to the 1st Cav I believe  and operated primarily out a Bien Hoa, An Loc area and spent some time at Bearcat/Camp Martin.

Thank you for your service!  I regularly, before COVID-19, play with a 76-year old USMC fighter pilot.  He's about a 6 'cap.

Work for TVA?  Sequoyah?  Never made it down there, but spent a lot of time in Oak Ridge.

Sorry for the 2X reply. I just figured out how to use the quote feature.I do work with Sequoyah and have a few acquaintances at the lab. Never got to fly the equipment but flew on a bunch of them to figure out how to fix problems. Loved the pilots - they would supply us with beer on the weekends for keeping them safe in the air!
