An Unimaginable Weekend

July 22, 2013 19 comments

If there was any doubt that I am cured from chronic pain caused by Piriformis Syndrome let me recap my weekend. I ran a total of six miles on Friday, played 18 holes of golf (at a course 1.5 hours from home) on Saturday and another 18 holes on Sunday. And, if that wasn’t enough, I did 1.5 hours of yard work late Sunday afternoon.

This was a weekend I could only dream of until recently…until I took a hard look in the mirror and said what more can I do to break through the recovery ceiling from surgery. The answer was counter-intuitive…I needed to exercise and be active. Surgery is the primary reason I am cured because exercise without surgery was useless. For me, I needed to change my lifestyle and become active once again about one year after surgery to truly attain my goal of being pain free 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The reason I didn’t make the choice to change my lifestyle sooner was because I was terrified I would trigger the chronic Piriformis Syndrome pain to resurface. I am no longer scared. Exercise is what my body needs.
