Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

exercise, slowly at first then strengthen yerself.
you will need the strength at sea. walk and ride bike and kayak and row. build up for it before rowing.

Zeehag,

As my father would say, "You have what it takes, now take care of what you have."

He was a Master Sergeant, actually Oberfeldwebel, but that would be infantry and land-locked.

Thanks for the motivation. Mark the date 8/10/11. First set already done. Pretty amazing difference. O2 to the vertebrae. I can almost hear them cheer.

Gracious. Reports on progress will continue.

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

Hello Zeehag,

I am feeling the pain of slow recovery. I know there's a song in there somewhere. Don't let your kids grow up to be geeks, or something like that. Just a status message and I'm continuing to just get to the point of a "good" hurt and not beyond.

Thanks,
Marty

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

There's many folks here with bad backs and necks , we got hit by a logging truck some 6 years ago and that changed our lives stopped down hill skiing and went back to sailing which I started in 1962 and my wife before that. I recomend a stable catamaran it will help your L 4 & 5 heal.

I'm also a teckie as a nuclear fuel mechanical design engineer, but that only helps me understand our boat maintance a little better.

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

Greetings too, also from Canada's west coast (vancouver). The trip sounds amazing. Good luck with it. We'll be sticking close to home, and enjoying every bit of it. Away for another weekend on the water with the kids.

post more about the journey! best.

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

Hi Mark! We are members of BCA, perhaps we've even come across each other! Where are you moored? We're at Victoria Marina, for one more week. And after a final haul-out in Maple Bay, then we are off to Cali/Mexico! Perhaps we'll meet!

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

Hi,

I must say I am not familiar with this format of thread reply, but I did receive a message in my "commercial" email account saying the my L4/L5 disc issues may not preclude me from sailing. I can only hope, since lack of funds do.

The doctor here performed another epidural and 5 days later the pain was back. Pardon the pun. Its all a ripoff and I thought only lawyers and real estate agents went there.... just kidding guys and gals. hmmm.

So, I had to run, thanks to whoever, whenever, and I know the whatever.

Sorry about your pain, I know it makes anyone cranky. I went the route of DR perscribed 5 hydrocodone a day for a couple of years after my accident then I got fed up and QUIT then went back to my perscribing Dr and ask for something different, He has me on Tramidol that blocks the pain recepters in my brain, the pain is not as bad and I can now memorise my music again and on with my life as a sailor. Do not trust any Dr totally and try other medication that can be perscribed. I sailed a monohull around the San Juan islands for several years and it was at anchor that the rolling of the boat caused extream pain in my neck but now on our little crusing catamaran I'm comfortable again and liveaboard.

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

Hello Zeehag,

My back has grown steadily worse since arriving in Seattle. Perhaps the cooler damp air, although today it was nearly 90. But, my disc between L4 and L5 is not something I would wish on too many enemies. I must give you notice of my unlikely attendance. In real world terms, oh shoot! Which I may go do tomorrow to release some frustration. I am very disappointed and apologize. As an aside, it was primarily poor posture sitting in front of a computer, and gain of weight that caused this to happen. I will not allow this to continue, because a) I've had 5 epidurals without even a kid to show for it, and b) I was alot better looking without the extra 40 lbs.
Sorry, skipper, I hope we meet up sometime. By the way, I probably did mention that I am a General Class HAM radio operator, so I could track your comm. if you'd let me.
Be well, and fair winds,
Marty

Re: Greetings from the Canadian West Coast

By the way, I live 100 feet from Lake Sammamish in Redmond, WA. It kills me not to kayak the lake.,,, But, you are so very right, work up to it slowly and I started doing Qi Gong. I hate taking pain pills.
