I'm kinda down fellas..... Mom who is 85 and very active ( still mows her yard,gardens, ect) has been laid up for about 2 months. Went chiropractor till a week ago. Thought it was sciatic nerve. Pain, burning and Charley horse feeling from butt to foot. 

Finally went to Dr last Friday. Xray shows deterioration in lower back L2, L4? And maybe a couple others, not sure now. Says it looks like something eating away at bones....she scared cancer. I don't know if it could be osteoporosis? In any case they want to do mri Tuesday and have her meet with a specialist that does travel to our town from DesMoines. 

She is very strongly opposed to the shot and freaking out a bit she will be denied medical care because of it. She sees all the online and news stories and over reacts sometimes. Tried to tell her that I don't know of anything like that happening here yet. 

I'm pretty bummed as it's hitting home just how old she is and how her health may fail at anytime now. Maybe already is....she has always been a hard worker and enjoyed her yard and garden as well as just keeping busy with day to day chores. Will be a big blow to her if she has to give all that up. 

If any of you are so inclined please pray for options in healing/treatment and wisdom from Dr's.

Prayers sent. Emphasize the positive, I see all the time how my mother at 93 keeps realizing she just cant do what she used to. She sure tries though!

Prayers of comfort and healing for your mom, Doug.

Once they figure out for sure what is causing the degeneration, there are directions they can go.

 

Will do.

 

And yes, there are some good multi-year fixes for degeneration, if nothing else is going on.  And degeneration with no other factors is pretty common above a certain age.

Hang in there!

Thank you everyone. Means a lot to me. 

Spent the day at her house doing some things indoors and out for her.. she was still trying to tote and carry in the house till I got after her. Insisted on fixing us both lunch. 

Sitting hurts tho not as much as standing or walking very far she says.  If she stays still and keeps warm under covers she can get reasonably comfortable.  Hopefully we will get some options for comfort and long term in the next week or 2.

She tried that for the last 2 months and finally decided to check with Dr. It helped some but just wasn't improving much past a certain point.
