another surgery
Well found out today that Dec 11, next Tuesday, I go in for surgery. I told my son it was from dragging in too many deer this year!:lol: Double hernias and I will be out of work about 4 weeks or so. Ohio late season is in 4.5 weeks, should be able to at least carry my ML around, maybe the son will have to drag #6 in :bag:. Getting old is no fun anymore.... :ranting:

Good luck to you. I'm only 32 but am stiff as a board when I get up in the mornings from my back. When I have to lean over I do so sort of to the left side more and then forward. After about an hour of being awake, I loosen up. I have been to the chiropractor 3 times in my life and while my back feels wonderful after a "session", it remains stiff in the mornings. Guess all them years of helping everyone move and lifting up kiddos all the time does take it's tole.

Good luck with the surgery. Hernias are a pain as you have to be so careful not to strain afterwards. My wife had hernia surgery last year.

I am also waiting for a date. I have a big bone spur in my achilles tendon about 3 inches up from the bottom of the heal. It is all swollen all the time and is right where your footwear presses when you lace it up. Takes about 6 weeks to recover from this surgery so I have to get it done before March or live with it till late next fall as I have to start prepping for bear hunters in mid-April and then it it go=go-go till the end of the fall guiding season.

No such thing as taking time off work for me and no workers compensation. Oh well........... such is life.

Thanks for the well wishes. If all goes well...., I'll let you know the pain level :unsure: both nasty and when the good stuff kicks in :yes: trouble is how the heck do you prevent these things when most of what we do is lift, drag, climb, cut/chop wood. The doc and I will have a good discussion regarding this!
