Hi Pops you give me hope dam it's good to hear your doing better in 8 months. I have not been able to stand up or walk without a walker. I am 66 was on Statin Drugs 2 yrs.
I told my Dr.'s from dayone I was having bad pain from them but they would not listen to me until I could not stand up or walk.
Now they know all about how to treat me they put me on the following with pain pills. I had to switch my pain pills the FDA pulled what I was taking off the market Darvocet. I got spacedoc.com news letter about pain relief and started on Ultrm last monday Dr. started me on 50 mgs / day this lasted a day I had to call him.
What the Hel* are they thinking putting me on this low dose when my pain level is a 10. I had to call him 3 times finely I am doing better taking 4 pills a day.
Still my Dr.'s keep pushing me to walk 30 min.'s a day and to do light exercise. Problem with this is when I feel better and try this it sets me back. I am going to try walking in water Mon.
This link to the news lettle helped me to under stand why walking and exercise sets me back.
