a brief update

Postby Adelaide_Guy_68 » Mon Mar 26, 2007 2:13 am

Well I though it was time for a quick update.

Things haven't been going so well for me over the last two weeks since I joined the forum and started my weight loss routine.

My motivation level is still very high and I am enjoying the great food I am eating, however the old body has caused a few problems.

I started off walking every night with the dog which I do regularly anyway.
Each lap of my walking circuit takes about 20 minutes.
I then drop the dog off home and do another lap but I try to alternate jogging and walking on the second lap.

All was going well until I pulled a hamstring on the second night.
I have never suffered this type of injury before and I was surprised just how painful it can be.

It has taken the best part of 2 weeks to get to a stage where I can walk without pain or a limp. I'm hoping next week I'll be able to get back in to it.

However, a trip to my chiropractors a couple of weeks ago had left me feeling a lot sorer in my back then usual after a treatment.

I went back the following week for a follow up appointment and was teasing the chiropractor about how sore my back was and telling her she had broken it.

Anyway after that visit my back pain got progressively worse each day.

My chiropractor was concerned that there appeared to be a group of 4 vertebrae in my back that were not moving as free as they should and the muscles had tensed up trying to protect them.

She booked me in for x-rays to see what was going on.

Anyway, to cut a long story short - I wouldn't wait until next week for my appointment as by today the pain was so bad that I could not hold a conversation as the pain was so sharp it was taking my breath away.
I couldn't do anything at all. I was in a bad way.

I headed off to the doctors and he organised x-rays immediately.

Both myself and the doc got the shock of our lives when the x-ray revealed fractures in 3 of my vertebrae!!!!!

No wonder the muscles were in spasms and I was in pain.

He was not able to determine whether they were new fractures or old injuries. You would think I would remember breaking my back in three places wouldn't you!!! Although I do remember some very serious motor bike accidents when I was around 18 that could have done the damage.

I have an appointment with a spinal specialist tomorrow once he has reviewed the x-rays.

As bad as it sounds, it is actually no big deal. It's just a matter of pain killers and resting until it heals.

I'm guessing that they are from an old injury and the chiropractor has simply aggravated the injury by 'cracking' my back.

So I'm laid up for a while. I've got some excellent pain killers which are making life more comfortable but I'm not going to be out working up a sweat for a while.

All in all it hasn't been the best start to my weight loss and fitness routine but I will get there.

I just thought I would share my first few weeks with you all. It can only get better from here.

Darren (the cripple)

aw darren you poor thing!!! thanks for sharing that with us it must be very frustrating. im sure that along with the chiropractor and the introduction of jogging etc its brought that old injury out. just rest up and i hope you heal up well. i can imagine the pain. i had the worst lower back pain in labour- it was worse than the contractions!!!

best wishes and keep in touch
