    You should. You've made immense progress.

    That's some good news and some rough truths there. Sorry you're still having some crappy effects.

    Good news that it healed better than expected though. Your daughter did well to crack a joke IMO, humour is the best way to deal with challenges :)

    I might have one - I'm going to be up late this evening as I have something important to get done so a Navy Strength Plymouth might keep me company.
    There's no other way to deal with it. If I hadn't got something like that, I'd have been surprised.

    Yeah, I tried not to sugar coat things. Hey, you never know - Next year, we may be able to raise a glass somewhere together again :)

    Hey Feek,

    Life has much suckage for us both right now. Had a stroke 2 months ago, I'm 90-95% fine now, but it's the last bit... :(

    When all this crap is over and socialising is possible again, have to meet up in London *especially if I can get some more comedy radio show tickets* and have a nice drippy, dirty burger again. :D

    Glad to hear you've got more movement than you originally thought you would! :)

    I'm going through a spell of rubbish health with a severe protruding disc and have been for the past 6 months, so I can sympathise and relate to how wearing it all is! I'm hoping to get a date for my surgery soon which will hopefully be before Xmas.

    Stay strong buddy, seems like you're making steady progress! Do you have a physio/exercise regime to do for rehab?

    I dislocated my arm at work on Saturday, thought I'd just banged it and it would only be a bruise. Tried to do some more work before realising I couldn't really move my arm and the pain was quickly getting far worse. A quick trip to A&E, some sedation and they popped it back in. Still sore but trying to move it about to ensure I still have full range of movement.

    Not now, no. I had some physio after the surgery and was given exercises to do which I did regularly for quite some time. I don't think the range of movement I have is going to get any greater now.

    Quite the thread and journey. Feek, I love the last three lines of your post #200.

    Keep on keeping on :)

    Genuine and loud laugh when I read that :D

    Thanks Mags, despite the rubbishness this year has been, I really do hope it'll improve a little bit.

    One thing I didn't say which occurred to me this evening, I subconsciously use my left arm far more than my right for most things now. If I'm reaching out for anything, even just a glass or a mug off the shelf then it's always my left arm. If I notice, I swap but 90% of the time, I use the arm which doesn't hurt.

    That's pretty cool, I wish the android ecosystem had a device as good as the apple watch

    Ah that's when you know you're getting old, mate. If they stand and laugh at you then you're young, if they rush over to help then you're not :)

    Get well soon

    :eek: you're the real Santa. If you don't get better how will you give presents to everyone on Christmas day?

    Dear Santa,

    I hope you get better soon. You better be recovered fully in 3 days time otherwise nobody will get presents.

    All the best and I wish you a speedy recovery.
