Surgery-Uh Oh!

Category: Mangoman's Blog | Posted: Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:00 pm

I just found out that I will have surgery on my lower back on April 23. I have had pain in my lower back and upper legs for the last five years and it has progressively gotten worse. Time to do something about it. Recuperation will be about a month so I need to educate my darling wife on some basic gardening knowledge. Maybe I can sit near my raised beds in an adirondak chair with a six pack and offer tips to her. Right. As my Mom would say, "That would go over like a lead balloon." Hopefully, I can recover fast enough to have a decent garden again this year. High today is 39, low tonight 24. Not good. Peace

Sorry to hear about the pain and upcoming surgery. Hopefully you will be kicking up your heels in no time...but not before the Doc gives to okay.

If you share the 6-pack with your wife and forget the gardening tips unless she asks for them, she might be willing to help with the garden. :)

Let's hope that after your surgery you'll be pain free and able to do everything you want to do. Don't rush things after your operation though - give yourself plenty of time to heal. After all you'll have the rest of your life to garden and do all the things that you're unable to do at the moment. Good luck for the 23rd April. I'll be sending healing vibes your way.

It will be great once your recuperation is over as you can concentrate on a pain-free gardening experience. Best of luck MM. And yes I think the lead balloon comment is accurate :D
