Back Problems board

Thanks to all of you for the great encouraging words! Yes, its GREAT to be able to shower and just to walk to the bathroom without my back killing me before I got there, LOL!! I even walked out to my mothers house today for the first time since Christmas. She lives right next door, probably about 100 yards away. I had to get her to change my morphine patch on my back! I just can't begin to explain how it feels when your back is not hurting all the time. Heck, I even took a shower and washed my hair without the pain today. Now if the surgery hurting was over.....LOL!!! I know that it will take time to really heal though. But I can wait out that pain. Thanks again and I'm praying for all of you who are still in pain........Love and HUGS.......Judy
