All was fine enough with my back that I reduced the pain killer dosage to once in the morning versus three times a day. Then yesterday, quite randomly, I had a setback—literally. I couldn’t roll out of bed like usual. I had to flop off by shimmying on my tummy. It hurt to walk. It hurt to sit. It hurt to bend. At night, I couldn’t even consider laying on my back. It was sore and twitched. I’ve heard it may take several months to heal. Until then, back to more drugs!
