We had gone around 10 years without cable, but with my surgery coming up I went ahead and got DirectTV.to make a long story short after 22 chiropractic sessions (basically traction) i was walking 5 miles without pain and graduated from walking at the ymca or the soccer field (where i could quit at any minute and be close to the car) to 5 mile loops at the mountain. was getting ready to bump the mileage up to 6 miles.
but then i did something stupid on my inversion table and reinjured myself. i'm back to where i was the first of the year; i can walk 2 miles (max) with pain both during and after the walk. i was hoping i did something muscular, but with no improvement for a month i don't think that's the case. so back to the doc's shortly.
i think surgery is in my future but that's only after i exhaust every other option.
but the good news is that 'm catching up on tv.
