Glad you made that trip home and in pretty good shape, Inwm. Good luck on the rest of the road to recovery.
Pipedream, we haven't had to deal with the insurance company problem yet, but I foresee it in our future.
Ger, glad you have a pool you can walk around and maybe the weather to cooperate!
Mike, stay away from cabinets, AND lifting dogs and young children. Ron hasn't attempted to do any yet. But walking is good!
142, you're always providing good advice!
Hello, Renee - hope all is going good for Geoff!
Here's the latest on Ron's rehab... the therapist recommended Headache in the Pelvis 5th Edition author, David Wise, PhD. This book describes in layman's terms, the Stanford Protocol, a treatment for pelvic pain developed at Stanford University in the Department of Urology. I cannot describe the things this therapist is doing to him.
Is anyone familiar with this book or the treatment?
