Hello and Thank you for asking….I'm still not able to work I am better then I was but I still have the sensation of something in side that isn't there and I still get pain on the left side I find yoga is the best help for me but I am done with any drugs (they all made me sick) i'm trying to use herbs valerian root and hops and cbd oil have seemed to give me the most relief thank you again for asking

Hi, @pizon – just wondering if you are continuing to have pain in your left side and whether you've been able to work lately?

Thank you for asking the pain in my left side has turned out to be my psoas muscle more then likely the way I was positioned on the operating table because my side never hurt me before so doing yoga and stretching has helped very much…I still have the p/n issue but the pain isn't as bad but yes still with me and I have had to apply for disability inns. I am not able to work I am not able to sit for more then 2 or 3 hours and sometimes not able to walk long distances but I am no longer on the sofa so hopefully I will get better enough to work again some day thank you again

Glad to hear you've been able to be up off the sofa, @pizon, and that the yoga and stretching have been helpful. I'm guessing it also helps to have more of an idea of what was going on?

Hope things go well with the disability insurance. What kinds of activities are you involved with to pass the time while you are unable to work?

Well I am making Christmas gifts, crocheting and sewing because I can't sit for very long periords of time I do a lot of work in the kitchen I just mad and put up pesto from my garden I make a lot of herbal teas that we drink thru out the day and I cook suppers every day without me working we can't afford to out and eat and we feel much better because of it the house work takes up a lot of time and working out and doing yoga and meditation before I know it the day is done…also going to the library quiet a bit and spending time with my grad baby so life is good just not as active as I would like to be but I am getting there thank you again for asking
