The scary part is the weakness in my right leg. PT is working on it. They want me walking as much as I can, and I like to walk, so I'm walking a few times/day, about a mile each time. I use my 8-iron as a cane.

Assuming no big set-backs, will confer with doc in 3 weeks to consider progress, and how to proceed.
Hang in there. Hopefully it will get better.

You know what finally broke me? I couldn't cough or sneeze anymore without crumpling in pain. Actually, sneezing in the car while driving became downright dangerous. I couldn't see straight for about 5 seconds from the pain of a sneeze.

When that didn't resolve and it got worse, I cried uncle.

I hope you don't go there. But do watch your weakness. It needs to be watched. I suggest you start a pain/symptoms diary so you can track things. I helped me, especially when I had episodes that I could refer to much later (like years later). Helps you keep perspective on your improvement or decline.
