I have had shots. I used ice, taken Tylenol arthritis, Rx Meloxicam Tabs, exercise in bed. There days following exercise that I hurt more than before. I have felt as thou I was going to fall. The event fightened me into making a date for surgery. My son keeps reminding me that it won't get any better the older I get. Still waiting for a date for the surgery. I have been told that zfter it is all done and over with, I'll wonder why I waited.
