In serious pain. Both my right knee and right hip are killing me! It is clear that my days of playing recreational hockey are over. A leisurely skate around the rink is about all I could manage anymore. Do you still play hockey and if so how old are you now?

Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

I'm feeling ya Umteman. It happens to the best of us. 3 years ago, in my early 40's, I hurt my lower back (right SI Joint to be specific) while taking a faceoff in my rec league (for the record, I won the draw! ) Originally I aggravated it at the gym and then blew it up in hockey. Sadly that was the last game I've played and I've only skated 3 times since then (my belly shows it too!) While the acute pain is gone, the chronic pain lingers. I've been contemplating finding a low level, non competitive, once-a-weeker to go out to...but I know myself and I don't know if I can just go easy. It's almost more of a mental adjustment than it is physical one.
