I took the liberty of coping this and starting a thread of it's own so everyone can see that Jack has had a problem that we all need to pray for a "Speedie" recovery for.

I ended up going to the ER yesterday via ambulance due to severe lower back spasms. They released me with some pretty heavy duty pain med ans muscle relaxer (no driving for at least a couple days). Not sure if or when we will get there.  Jack

BK,
   Thanks, I am doing much better today, at least I can walk and sit with no spasms, just a low grade lower back ache.  I won't try driving until I am off the pain meds, not worth the risk of driving with slowed reactions due to the meds.  Jack

Bummer Jack. You need to get better quickly! You are too old to get that hurt. But then again getting old ain't for sissies. Grin  Just as a side thought, have y'all been kayaking lately? Just thinking out loud.

God bless.

Here's hoping for a quick recovery for you Jack!

I have similar issues with my own back, and am now a fulltime member of the 50 mcg/h Fentanyl Patch Club due to it. I also take enough 10/325 Norco, that I rattle when I walk.   Sad

Good luck!

Jack,

We will pray for a fast and painless recovery. Tami and I both know that back problems are no walk in the park.

Jack,
You can believe I am sorry to hear about your back pain.  As you probably know I am also still having much difficulty which hampers working on the Eagle as vigorously as I want to.  The pain is very severe from the middle of back, through my butt down to the back of both of my legs at the same time.  The spasms nearly bring me to my knees.  The operation I had only give me great relief for about 6 months, here we go again.  So take your time, we hope to see you at Kyle's rally and here at the house as you planned. 

You have a lot of nuts pulling for you as you know.  Have Paula tow the bus with the Jeep??  HEHE

Good Luck Jack and these are supposed to be the great golden years!!

     Almost back to normal today. I was amazed at how extreme the pain could be when those lower back muscles go into spasm.  We plan to leave Thursday morning to go to Palmetto Cove.
     Yes, I kayaked Saturday, participating to the NC "Clean Sweep" river clean up program. I think that was what started the problem. A lot of reaching to the side picking up trash from the river bank. Then I paddled a couple miles of class 1 rapids on Sunday as this was going to be my last chance to paddle some NC rapids before heading to SC.  Jack

For Crying out Loud, Jack! If you're not careful you won't have the pleasure of experiencing these wonderful "Golden Years" Jackie and I are living!  Wink

Could it be that you should be sitting on the porch 'cause you can't 'run with the big dogs' anymore?  Cheesy

I doubt that I could handle all the pleasure you and Paula have had this summer traveling the country and visiting good friends. But certainly you youngsters should be able to......

Take it easy, and safe, and we'll be welcoming your visit around the 1st of November.

Jackie & Bob

Just for the heck of it you guys might want to check your potassium levels. Might be part of the problem.

Sounds like some under-used muscles and attaching tissues are making a statement!

Get them some rest, and then get them limbered up for more of the same use!!!

The body just yelps louder and longer as it gets more "experience"

Playing it safe or pushing the limit, doesn't change the march of time.

I'm finding myself inclined to push....

happy coaching!

This is not what I wanted to hear Jack!

I hope you get better soon and do what the Doc says. Don't mess around with it, I had back surgery 8 years ago, it aint no fun. But I've been pain free since.

Take Care and don't push it!

Glad to hear you are mending fast and we'll pray it continues. 

I know what you mean about how fast it can go from zero to agony.  When I injured my back 25 years ago it was almost a month from the event that injured it till it showed any symptoms.  Then one day I got in the car feeling fine, drove to a gas station about a mile away and when I tried to get out of the car I was in so much pain I could barely move.
