    Okay so you guys all know my back issues and recovery. I have still been having hip issues ( the complaint I had in JAN of 2018 that started all of this crap). I saw the orthopedist yesterday. They took x-rays and 10 minutes later I am with the Doctor and looking at my films. WTF???? My left hip is a total wreck. Now they want to do a hip replacement. FUCK ME!!! I have to digest this a little before I can go forward.. MK

    Yep it's me again, LOL!!! I can now walk with two canes, no more walker. Getting stronger everyday. I see the orthopedists in two weeks, Hopefully will be able to fix my hip problem and get me off the canes? Saw the eye doc last week, 3 1/2 hours of testing. Yep I do have cataracts and they are 2 going to 3 on a scale of 4. So that will be next on the list of surgeries. I knew I was going blind dammit, LOL!!! Been working on new 3d models for my guitars. Have almost finished my main body "Vision", I have the "No Diddley" model in basic completion, working on variations, as well as a new Bass body I am currently modeling. Will be adding an F5 mandolin to the work as a one off for my Son-in-law. Also working on modeling an acoustic electric based on the Fender acoustic-sonic tele. Will be using my "Vision" body style for that. A lot to do and I need my health back.. LMAO!!! Hope everyone is well? Will post more as I get there.. Mike

    Yep, I'm still alive. LOL!! I can finally use a walker and get around to some extent. Fuck me been over 2 months since my surgery. Still having problems with the complications. Edema in legs is down some. I actually was able to wear an old pair of tennis shoes today. Whoopee! First time in months. Having problems with my left hip. MRI says my back is fine so now to get a hip Ortho Doctor to look at this and make sure what the hell is going on? Thought all of the pain was strictly back related? It seems that maybe underlying hip issues at the same time? Sleep is better not optimal but better. Now sleep about 2 hrs at a time vs. 15mins at a time. LOL!! Hope everyone is well? I have rebranded my Guitars. They will now be under the Rio name. Rioguitars.com, this will automatically redirect to Riocustoms.com. I have secured the sites, just have not built the sites yet. Still working on the new logo. I will be adding additional stringed instruments to my work, Including Mandolins and some others. Everyone take care will post more as my health improves. Mike

    Been a while since I posted. Happy New year to everyone. So, on December 10th I had my back surgery. All went well and going great until day 2 post op. My surgeons did not follow my hematologists orders and did not administer my anticoagulant as directed, meaning they did nothing. I asked about this with no reasonable response. I was released on day 4 post op. Day 5 I was back in the hospital with 5 blood clots in my legs. Major setback back and totally should not have happened. I have been having more issues arise from this oversight than I can explain. All can say is I wish this on no one. This is the short version guys as you really don't want to know the details, they are nasty and painful. I now have about 5 months of rehab in front of me verses 1.5 months. I will get better but this road is the toughest I have ever faced. Age is is not helping. God Bless and be back soon. Mike

    That was some funny shit there guys. LMAO!! it hurts to laugh. Surgery went well, no pain in the legs or hip any more. The incision is quite painful though ( that will get better ). Hopefully will go home in a few days , I'm not rushing anything at this point. MK

    @ Carl, I will be up and around within a week, PT will be about 4 months to get me back to some strength.. I will have limits for a time on weight lifted and other things but that is expected. I'm just ready to be free of pain and somewhat mobile again.. This bed and pain crap is driving me bat shit crazy.. mk

    So this is what a fucked up back report from MRI looks like. December 10th I have surgery to fix this shit. Saw my cardiologist today Pre-Op for surgery is a go. Only have Internal medicine Doctor to sign off now. That will be after Thanksgiving. MK MRI FINDINGS: Lumbar Spine: Nonspecific relative straightening of the lumbar spine, unchanged. L2-3 Grade I retrolisthesis measuring 2.2 mm and redemonstration of L3 on L4 Grade I anterolisthesis measuring approximately 3 mm. Vertebral body heights are maintained. Diffuse lumbar discs desiccation and narrowing from L1-2 to L5-S1. L4-5 annulus fibrosis fissure. Diffuse anterior and posterior vertebral body bone spurrings worst at L2-3. Endplate degenerative fatty changes versus hemangiomas at L2-3 and L3-4. Bone marrow signal is otherwise within normal limits. Redemonstration of L3-L5 laminectomies. Conus terminates at L1 level. Evaluation of disc levels as follows: L1-2: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge, epidural lipomatosis, and bilateral facet arthrosis resulting in moderate thecal sac narrowing measuring approximately 5mm AP without foraminal stenosis. L2-3: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge, epidural lipomatosis, and bilateral facet arthrosis resulting in severe thecal sac narrowing measuring approximately 4mm AP without mild to moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis. L3-4: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge, epidural lipomatosis, and bilateral facet arthrosis resulting in severe thecal sac narrowing measuring transverse 3.8mm and AP 6.3mm with mild right and moderate left foraminal stenosis. The posterior disc bulge is contacting the left exiting L3 nerve root. L4-5: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge and bilateral facet arthrosis without significant thecal sac narrowing or foraminal stenosis. L5-S1: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge and bilateral facet arthrosis without significant thecal sac narrowing. Mild to moderate right foraminal stenosis with the posterior disc-osteophyte protrusion contacting the right exiting L5 nerve root. Mild degenerative changes in bilateral sacroiliac joints.

    Good news, Surgery will be on December 10th, also not as invasive as the other ASS Hat doctor was going to do. I am pleased, have a lot to do in a short time though. The pain will be taken care of soon. MK
