Default Old people pain updates

Wolf, you over those shingles yet?
daArch, are you 100%, 100% of the time..or does it come back if you twist or turn a certain way?
Hound, what's your prognoses. Is yours still from that fall from the truck?
Me, I hurt all over all the time, but found Advil (2 for the price of 1) at Walmart.
Schmidt, chrisn...you're old farts, how come you ain't in pain?

Pain is gone, rash is almost gone. Back to the normal aches and pains, so I guess all is good.

I think I'm a firm believer that the longer you work the easier it is to either ignore or put up with the pain....at least then you have a reason for doing so. LOL

Will the rash leave a scar, or do you know yet?

I'm off to work..so I'll have wonder about it until later.

The adrenaline gets me thru the day, the pinot noir thru the evening and the advil thru the night!! It's funny Steve, I used to work out a little so I would be in the best shape I could be for the "game". Now I have to save it all for the game. There was a time all those push-ups helped me to roll ceilings all day long. Now, if I do the push-ups, the shoulder is no condition to roll the ceiling! Pretty cruel stuff....and the back...don't get me started...
Some "discomfort" is the new normal. Still rather fight it and be active though, than be in the office.

Glad to hear the shingles are subsiding Wolf. Everyone who I have ever spoke to who has experienced that, says it's no picnic...

Thanks Steve for reminding me

The new well has been completed and now there is a mound of dirt that is being screened and spread - by hand.

The winter wood has been delivered and is being stacked.

Son Jake went off to college last week and "suggested" we play golf before he left.

My back DOES hurt now. The muscles are weak. I should not bite off as much as I have.

The knee is no longer swollen, but still hurts. X-ray shows no spurs or other deformities.

The plantar fasciitis is better with a home made arch support, but still is painful.

God grows distillable grains for a reason.

Speaking of push-ups. My bro made some comment that inactivity after my back operation seems to have caused me to loose muscle tone around my neck and shoulders. So I started doing push ups. At first I could barely do five. Now I can easily do 20 - 25 (these are REAL pushups, straight back, no butt in the air, nose down to the floor and all the way up). It's amazing how much better I have felt after a day of stripping walls.

I have no scars after my bout with shingles a few years ago.

I don't think mine will either. I'll just be glad when it's gone.

Nope. This still pretty much sums it up...

Thanks Steve, for not including me in the Old Farts Club, but I'll update anyway.

Distal biceps tendon still seems to be attached after 15 weeks of surgery. Like Bill, I'm probably being more aggreisive with working then I should be, so there's a constant but slight sensation of irritation in the repaired region. I continue to run for good circulation, but have limited myself with the weight lifting.

My HMO, BEVMO, has provided premium care and therapy for me with their inventory of 1792 Ridgemont from Kentucky.

I don't know how many push ups I could do right now. I do know that 1 is likely to make me unable to roll a ceiling too. So no use finding out.

Do you need to me fly out again and help with all the chores?
Damn, daArch.. working pretty hard on your off-time.

Congrats on the push ups though..like I just said. I can't do any without risking an extended forced vacation.

You're lifting weights and running? This is an old people thread.
(I would have included you, but I figured you were more in the 40ish crowd. "Old Fart-ism" doesn't start until 50)

What's the story on the bicep? Were you working or playing?

Chris, I'd normally say that you're an "accident waiting to happen", but it seems like most of them have already. I can understand most of what you listed, but I'm still trying to figure out the fishing lure in the nose. Could you demonstrate this for us with pics?

Thanks for creating a venue where shameless and inapporopriate self disclosure is rewarded, and therefore I was grandfathered off your radar. Makes my day.

So do you have any old-people pains to report or not?

..and my radar is vast.

I didn't know CA was old because I don't have graydar. (I made that up just now).
