Hope things are going better. And whatever treatment was recommended was expeditious, and resulted to no more pain. We miss your presence on A/P.
I second that. Wishing you a happy and healthier new year!
Thanks Clark & Phil. Progress is slow and that's not surprising. I'll be on this abx regimen (half IV, half oral) for some 8 more weeks. Symptom improvement (esp balance) but also pain are two key yardsticks - as well as what progress future MRIs show. I have one scheduled for Jan 15. Come spring maybe I'll be able to do my thing. Which would at least be AP logable.
I haven´t been following AP as closely as I´m sometimes doing so I have not noticed your long absence. Had to backtrack to remember what was wrong.
Hope you´re getting better and - as you say - will be able to get out and about more in the spring.
BTW the weather here is actually more spring than the winter we´re all longing for. Definitely no skiing recommended on the bare ground - as it´s not good for the skis and also very slow ;)
