pain relief??

today i am going to have radio frequency ablation to my lower back in the hopes of relieving some of the pain that i've been dealing with.  i had similar procedures done in Toledo when i lived there, and they worked very well for me.   i am really tired of being in pain and i'm trying to lose weight, which will definitely help.  right now i am about 40 pounds above my ideal weight.  Lorence teases me about the size of my stomach, but it really is out of control.  i joined Overeaters Anonymous online, but i haven't really gotten serious about it.  all of that is going to change because i want to be able to do things with Lorence that i can't do right now because of my weight.  i think when we get home from the procedure, i willt take my manual chair out for a spin.  that is one good way for me to get some exercise.  i am also thinking about walking with my crutches to try and build up some stamina.

good to see you ethan! sorry i missed your call awhile back-i need your number again. if you want to text me anytime that's great. i understand back pain-i started working last week doing some painting/window repairs and my back just cries, i swear! i've gained about 20 lbs this year, i don't like it at all but not enough to quit the chocolate and pizza, haha. i think getting back into the physical work will help me out though. miss you, bro, and i hope to get a text from you soon!

hey Curt, good to hear from you. that kind of work really is hell on the body. i don't know if i have your number anymore. shoot me an email at ethan.young@ymail.com and i will definitely text you. i miss talking with you.
the procedure went well, but they didn't do what i thought they were going to do. they did a medial branch block instead of a radio frequency ablation cuz they hadn't ever worked with me before and they didn't have my records from Toledo, but so far this is working out pretty well. pain went from an 8 to a 2 right after the procedure.
anyway, send me an email and we'll definitely talk soon.
love you, man!!!
