    With so many HAMBers being on the DL, maybe we should start a list. Maybe we could keep up on progress? I wish them all well.
  2. Put me on the lazy list, or maybe HBA (hampered by age)

    I'll get it done tomorrow . :D
  4. Broken rib here. On the mend and finally able to cough without wanting to die. I'll always be lazy.

    Ammendment #1: Having read through post #59, I realize that a broken rib ain't no big deal, especially when it's the first broken bone I've had in 63 years (not counting numerous fingers when I played volleyball on a regular basis). To all those with serious health issues, I hope you get healing and comfort soon. To those without serious health issues, practice good safety habits and take care of that body.

    Does it count as sick if you have to go to the Chiropractor for the first time ever? Okay, if it's a contest, Doc's got me beat, by miles.

    After reading about Doc (I knew a guy who's chute didn't open...landed on a barn... messed up but lived) and Butch27 I'm one of the friggin healthy ones!
    Only one blown disk (had surgey 2 years ago... working good), 3 or 4 broken ribs all healed up. Heart, lungs, spleen and kidneys working again after a near-death illness. 7 surgeries for other things that are odd and weird.
    I feel great, just tried/lazy.
    Lots of folks here struggle more than some of us can imagine.
    I think a list would be a full-time job.
    I wish everyone well.
    This morning I spent a couple hours on my truck box and was going to veg for a little while this afternoon. After thinking about it.. I'm going back to play while I still can.
    Cheers, folks.
  19. Doc's in the lead.

    For myself:

    Sprained MCL right knee.

    Torn rotator cuff muscles right shoulder.

    Small fracture and bigger sprain in left wrist.

    Torn tendon left ankle.

    Couple of compressed dics and misaligned vertebrae.

    Overuse and/or injuries. Some old, some new.

    As Marty Feldmann said in Young Frankenstein, "What hump?"

    Thank God for cortisone, and for other good stuff. :)

    You need another column - broke.
  23. Well, pals, this is the first day out of the hospital for me after heart surgery. While I feel about 1000% better than yesyerday, I still feel like I've been eaten by a coyote and shit off of a cliff.

    Does a bad cold count??
    Arthritis in my hands and knees is the worst I can come up with.
    Lazy is just a way of life. :)

    I'm pretty lazy, broke and have a short attention span, which is how all these half fixed cars ended up here.

    PS: Get well soon Chili (posting on the HAMB is making progress though)

    Does it count as lazy if I just work REAL SLOW because of the 4 rugrats I have?

    I guess I qualify.

    Feb. 24th, 1968; I was born ;)

    Nov. 21st, 2001; Low back injury:=compressed and bulging L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs, with tear in L5-S1, dianosed with degenerative disk disease, spinal stenosis, slighly osteoporotic vertabrae, and severe facet joint wear.

    Started treatment with a chiro, mostly for massage therapy and traction.
    Started out on T-3 for the pain, was up to Vicodin/norco within 3 months.

    Sent to pain managment specialist, who managed to keep the pain under control for a few years thru continious increases in strength and dosage of meds like morphine, Methadone, and now I'm on 180mg of roxicodone a day.

    I've had well over 5 different types of Injections like cortizone, tried 2 epidurals with no results, and spent the next 3 years riding it out on heavy duty meds.
    Spent a little over a year in such excruciating pain that I was bed ridden.

    Spring, 2006; Saw a GOOD neurosurgeon, who suggested I try doing a series of Facet rhyzotomys, which I did in July and Aug., and all the pain dissapeard (was taking 190mg of Methadone at the time) , started to de-tox off the Methadone and thats when the fun began (it really is as bad as coming off heroin)

    July/Aug. 2007; had another round of Facet Rhyz. done, with less success than before.

    Dec.2007/Jan. 2008; had it done again, this time with no results to speak of.

    Feb. 7th, 2008; saw doctor for follow up, he did an in depth physical assesment and thinks I've got a fractured or crumbling facet joint on my lowest vertabre.

    I'll be having an MRI done on the 10th, and will prob end up having major vertabral reconstructive surgery, including the replacement of 2 vertabre and 3 disks.
    I'll be layed up in a body cast for as long as 6 months, maybe less.
    then comes the physical rehab.

    Looks like I'm not gonna make it to Paso-Maria in the hot rod I've been trying to build for the last 3 years. I've had it since my 37th B-day, just haven't been well enough to get-er done.

    Here's some pics;

    the motor;

    Ok this is getting me depressed, so I'm done
