It's been over 10 years.
    I will try it. Thx.

    Ace, I'm so sorry that you were in so much pain during your cruise. I know how much you were looking forward to it. Hopefully, you were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery from the ship. I hope that you get your PT straightened out, and that you get some relief soon. That's got to be miserable.

    Thanks! Trying to remain positive. 1 week prior to leaving on vacation I saw a pain doc who said it might be a herniated disc or arthritis of the hip but won't know until some test. So she prescribed some meds and overtime I called the pharmacist the recording kept saying it was pending. After 5 days I asked to speak to a live person. Turns out insurance required a preauthorization for the medication or was willing to approve a higher dose but not the low one. Long story short, I called doc and she said she never received anything from pharmacy. I made the pharmacy call doc and it got straighten out. Now I come back from vacation ready to start PT. The PT place told me the doc script for PT was not good. I said why not? Because effective 10/1 my insurance requires a preauthorization for PT. I called doc. They tell me the script is good for 1 month and it was dated 9/13. i told them yes I know but effective 10/1 the script is no longer accepted so a preauthorization is required. Grrr. All this back and forth while in pain but trying to stay positive..

    Thanks Andrea. I feel asleep for 2 hours this evening in the sofa living room watching tv with Ms Daisy. It was the best sleep Ive had without pain for weeks! I guess the sofa is soft enough for my back.
