Jeff;  Febuary was five years of no smoking for me and I added over fifty lbs.  I now notice that everything seems to be better in sixes. Six popsicles, six scoops of ice cream, six pack of beer. etc.  Sometimes all on the same day.  I have cut the time  it takes to eat this amount down to about 3 hours.  Usually between dinner and bed time.

Some of these have been mentioned, but as a person that crawls off a roof with a lot of aches and pains here's what I do.


You ever seen them vibrating heating pads like they make now.  You can get em that you can lay on yer bed, or that you can put in your chair and sit down and lean back on.  You can set the better ones for different heat, and more or less vibration and in different areas.

Mild  stretching excerises are good.

And Jeff, when it gets a bit better start walking every day, and 'push yerself back from the table'.  Losing pounds will make a difference.  'tryin to sneak that one in'

Epsom salt baths will make ya feel real good.  Use LOTS of epsom salt.

Muscle relaxers will help relieve tight muscles.  

My last secret weapon is what I call ET.  It's a fairly heavy massager with a long curved handle and a funny looking head and two vibrating balls.  It will either take two soft ones, two hard ones, or two that will heat up. The best thing I've ever seen for 'spot massage'.  Looks almost exactly like ET.

Also I got me one of them electrical things that shock like the chiropractors use.  I don't break that one out too often. :)


Old Age and Treachery will outperform Youth and Inexperence. The thing is, getting older is starting to be painful.

4 years ago, I had sciatic nerve problems. I kept going to the docs, and they too just wanted to give me pain killers. After 3 long months with terrible pain, I found a chiroractor who helped me out.
My right leg was completely numb.When I started to get the feeling back, it was like a sunburn on the inside of my leg.
However, since it took so long to get cured, I now have permanent nerve damage to my right leg. I also get terrible leg cramps frequently. I take magnesium tablets every day. They help some, but not enough.

Well, one trip to the chiropractor today and I have been pain free most of the day. I gotta go to have pre-op tests tomorrow but after that I am going to come back and see him again for another adjustment before he leaves for elk hunting and I get my shoulder autopsied. I sure hope I stay straight because I cant imagine being like that once they got my wing pinned back on Monday. I would be totally useless instead of just virtually useless.

Jeff, hope you get straightened up before your operation. Chiropractors have been a life-saver for me, I wouldn't be able to keep working without one.

A little soreness has returned tonight, and I have to drive clear to grayling and back tomorrow which i know is going to aggravate it, but the cracker said he will be waiting for me when I get home to give me another twist. :)

Jeff,
A hot compress of 2 cups Epsom Salt per gallon of hot water for your back after the autopsie might be the ticket.

Or maybe right now!!

Jeff;  If you drink that epsom salts, you won't have to worry about driving.
