He would be very much in favor of theraputic massages! I'll be sure to mention it to him. The chiropractor would not be something he would want to jump into at all - it would be more a last resort type thing for him.
We'll see how the fosamax discontinuance goes - he can always go back on it if that is not what is doing it to him.
He played golf today but could not tee off with the way the back and hip are. He basically chipped and putted and drove the golf cart but at least got some walking/exercise in.
We go to Vegas this Sunday for 6 days - hope he can get some enjoyment out of this and not be uncomfortable. I'm sure the change of pace will take his mind off it too.
