PT worked best so far! I have very goood days and painful days ! If I go to grocery store and go to the pool for a few hours ,the next day I'm in pain ! Same for any exercise that is normal for other people ! It is very frustrating . How can I maintain my weight, if i cannot work out without causing pain ?
