My Back Pain Break Is Over

Just over a year ago, I switched to a new back pain doctor because my old one was an idiot. I like my new doctor. I saw him a whole bunch of times through 2017. At my last appointment, he said to me "instead of scheduling your next appointment, why don't we wait and see how you do and you call me when you need to see me?" I thought that was fine. I have not seen him since November and have nothing scheduled.

Unfortunately, my back is very unhappy with me in many ways. The pain level breaks through my pain patch. This has been going on for a week or so. I might wait another week or so before calling but I don't know how long I can last.

Damn, damn, damn. This does not make me happy. I didn't lift or carry things anything. I have done some laundry today but that doesn't usually hurt my back. Today I think I had an uncomfortable chair at the garden club meeting today.

On a positive note, it has been a while since my back has been this bad and required any treatments. This has been a very nice break. But at least I am not seeing my oncologist.
