Re: Back ache BUT only when i stand!
the one thing I have found on this board is that no matter how unusual something seems, there is another person here that has the same thing. Among many other things, my chief complaint is identical to yours. I had it before my surgery and i still have the aching in my lower back that ramps up to an 8 if I dont sit down. I use a very sturdy cane theat if need be, I can hunch over and support some of my weight until I can sit. I recently found a 3 wheeled bike that I can use to exercise. I use it almost daily now and maybe this will help me lose some weight.
