Hi Mary Ann,
It's good to see you. I'm glad to hear you have the summer off to relax and enjoy the family. I have heard others say they stopped their plaq and had bad experiences also. It's a good thing you got back on it quickly before you got any worse.
I hope your pain management goes well and you get some relief soon. Please keep us updated and take care. Enjoy the summer! You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
