    Rarely going to the doctor is not a good thing. You need a check up and blood work once a year. Refusing to admit getting older and not going to the doctor is why my dad died of prostate cancer.

    I get an annual and with all my brothers having had prostate cancer, I'm staying on top of that believe me.
    I mean I rarely ever go for "issues".

    As an update, despite a couple decent efforts, pain has not returned, thank God.

    This works for me. When I get on my ice cream binge, my joints, bones, muscle and brain suffer. Laying off all sugar and carbs for a week and I feel 10 years younger. Sugar is of the devil!

    If, I hadn't seen my doctor last year, I would have been in much worse pain.

    The regular prostate check up is necessary in my family too. Good to know you stay on top of it.

    Back pain is a *****. I’m finally getting mine under control after fighting it for 40 years with cortisone shots and nerve ablations. It’s hard to do much of anything when you’re in pain. So, good for you.

    I didn’t read every post to this thread but, I will to see how you beat your back pain. I hope yours doesn’t return.

    Avoid surgery at all cost if possible!

    If Chiro is an option, find one who uses an activator, little mechanical "thumper" thing, rather than manually jerking/cracking the spine. Dr. Greller in Athens uses this system.

    Activator is the way to go.
