Really, don't call her. She has to get up and answer the phone and it's painful.
I think I have convinced her to do the exact opposite of what she did last time she hurt her back. Sit on her ass and rest.
She's gonna kick my ass if I tell her to sit or stay one more time. I'll take my chances.

ahhh--don't get more back surgery if you can avoid it! See if you can find a chiropractor that does "network care." This doesn't involve cracking and popping of the bones. Keeps my sciatica from becoming too painful.

mrsb said...

Ouch! I'm saying a prayer for you, YDG!

Josh said...

I hate to hear that JS, hope you feel better really soon...

Mama Kelly said...

Oh {{{{ Granny }}}}

Have you tried alternating heat and ice to bring inflammation down?

Please rest and feel better soon.

I am using heat/ice and resting..sleep with double pillows between my legs all the time...hoping it will miraculously heal it'self..no more surgeries...can't do it..between the allergies to the pain meds and trying to take just enough to help and not enough to kill me, it's too hard...I start to hyperventilate when I even think about it..

LostInCO said...

don't answer the phone, and rest...wishing your pain away.

Nit Wit said...

I knew there was a reason I never call you.
That really sucks though. I know what that pain is all about though mine was in my arms so at least I could still walk. Had a lot of lower back pain before but only one minor bulging disk lower down and the neck fusion seems to have helped that a lot.
Just park the computer TV and a big pile of books within arms length and try to heal up.
Remember the number one rule of back injury; don't bite the hand that feeds you. Knowing Babs she might bite you back.
Take care and get well,
Love Nit.

yellowdog granny said...

lic:thanks for the best wishes.
nitwit:for you I would get up and answer the phone..using a heating pad and it seems to be helping..
sage:peeing is hard to do s I think gymnastics is out of the question..haha

McRaven said...

awww crap. I hate back pain. I have some wonderful pain killing drugs left over from the breast removal if you want I should send them to you...:)) Will burn some sage and do a Dakota dance for you.

Woozie said...

Ooooh I should call!

Nan said...

No suggestions, just the hope you're feeling better soon.

Travis Erwin said...

Here's hoping you feel better soon.

rebecca said...

Ouch! Go away, back pain!!! Shoo! Shoo!!!!

unokhan said...

here's an unwritten line from an imaginary song:

"you stay on your back and i'll keep you on my mind"

catscratch diva said...

Oh crap. That sucks. Feel better!

Big Pissy said...

Oh,man! Back pain is the worst! :(

Feel better soon! :)

jan said...

Almost all humans have back pain at one time or the other. It's our own fault for deciding to walk upright instead of the way nature intended for backs to function.

yellowdog granny said...

mcraven:no drugs for me...I'm allergic to most of them, and if I take enough to help the pain, then my throat closes up and waiting to stop breathing is not how I want to go..so burn that sage and do that dance.
woozie:damn kid..you made me laugh so hard it hurt my back..
nan, travis and rebecca:thanks for the good wishes..I think it helped..
unokhan:i always liked the song:"I can't get over you, so get up and answer the phone your ownself."
bigpissy;thanks..i appreciate it..
jan:yup, crawling around on our hands and knees is the way to go..

That Rude Girl said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your back! If the ice and heat don't help, go see a chiropractor. I had a bad car accident several years ago and then some dumb lady rear-ended me and made my injuries worse, and the chiropractor does wonders for my neck and upper back.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Sling said...

Crap!..That just sucks.
Take care of yourself,and listen to Babs.

Elizabeth said...

Granny - remember what you told me when The Knucklehead was being uncooperative? You told me to tell him, "SIT motherfucker! STAY!"

Time to take your own medicine babe! Rest!!!!! Hope you feel better soon.

old enough to moan said...

Oooooooo, I know how that feels - take care and get well soon. x

Allan said...

Doralong said...

A good massage therapist and a fifth of bourbon ought to do the trick..

Sorry you're down in the back, that's no fun at all!

yellowdog granny said...

doralong:oooh shit!...a fifth of bourbon...yeah, not having drank in 17 years, that's not exactly what i would call a good idea..hahahahahah
