Now that the surgery is done and he had a vacation Bear is going to the back doctor tomorrow to see about getting the problem fixed that sent him to the doctor in the first place--before we knew more than we wanted to about prostates and PSAs smilewinkgrin
Not looking forward to having to list "rehab" drugs as current medications while visiting an orthopedist, but guess it will be part of life now.  If that is my biggest concern. . .then better count my blessings. yeah
Still here and reading posts,

CareBear,

Sounds like things are going well. I've added long lists of meds to my new normal as well. Luckily I can do everything at one pharmacy, so I just get them to print out the "current" list.

Good to see news from you.

My best to Bear, and to you for all your care. Yeah, as we get olders, that med list seems to be growing, part of the charm I suppose. Good luck with his appointment.

One should never be ashamed of taking medication to care for ones self. If you do not feel comfortable with your orthopedist in any way then pick one that you can be open with without any reservation
