Maybe a little better, but it still hurts. Will see the heavy duty specialist this week.
Thanks for all the well wishes, good thoughts and concern.

Hi Bill, if your back is causing you pain look into PEA, which is short for palmitoylethanolamide.
It's a completely natural compound that works truly fantastic, among others as a painkiller without any side effects and also no known interaction with pharmaceutical medication.

I have been using it for years as a neuroprotectant for my eyes, and i also recommended it a friend of mine who has serious back problems due to several crushed discs (plus a full titanium support structure screwed to his spine).
He was on large doses of fentanyl (morphine) each day for years, and was able to make a complete switch to PEA and he no longer needs any fentanyl.
He is over the moon.

I have found PEA to work best for me if i start the first week with 6 x 400 mg a day, then lower the dose to 4 or 3 x 400 mg each day.
My friend does the same.

This link leads to medical reading material about PEA on Pubmed:

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=P ... hanolamide

See what you think of it.

Dr. changed my NSAIDs and I saw a marked improvement.
Got in to see surgeon Friday, and the news was good. Since I am showing improvement, we are going to wait and see what happens.
There are a couple of options if it gets worse, before surgery.
Even if I have to have surgery, it won't be a bad one. 3-4 weeks recovery time. Outpatient.
Still taking it easy, and working on the backlog.

I had lower back surgery and the surgeon told me that I will have problems with my back for the rest of my life. So far he has been correct.

Sounds good Bill. Keep us posted. I have been very lucky with my spinal stenosis over the last few years. I keep a daily exercise routine and walk 10,000+ plus steps a day. Turmeric daily.....
