Misery loves company

Postby black udder » Sat Jan 06, 2007 12:06 am

Man, this is killing me.. I had a hip replaced and can't play any golf until February (haven't been able to since Oct 30). All I can do is chat on the forum, study form, buy disc golf equipment and wait... gah!

On the bright side, I've already changed my form a few times and it hasn't hurt me or caused me any bad scores...

On the downside, I now have 3 times as many discs to go field test thanks to everybody's comments about how great disc X is or how must better plastic Y is to throw.

Talk about time dragging....

Sounds like you're spoiled with good weather. There are many of us who don't play between Nov and Feb most years because of the weather. :wink:

we're being "blessed" with incredibly good weather for winter. It's been rainy, but 70 yesterday & today.

Blake, I'll consider myself lucky. Thanks for the perspective.

my dad had his hip replaced and remember it being quite a big ordeal.

hope you have a swift smooth recovery udder.

maybe you can get a mini basket and set a few holes up around your place.

lucky, and we are having the worst winter I can remember. . . the one winter I planned on going w/ out a car and just a motorcycle (last winter there were only 3 or 4 days I couldnt have rode the motorcycle. . . this winter its already been almost 4 weeks. . .)

I have been unable to play regularly since May 2005.

I had shoulder impingement problems from 5/05 til 10/05 and have had a groin injury from 9/05 to the present. I did play some tournaments this past summer with little to no practice and playing at only 70% capabilities has dropped my player rating about 20 points. I haven't played a round since the begiining of October and I'm hoping to rehab over the winter months as to resume play in late March or early April.

I know your pain as well. I have been out since mid July due to lower back pain. I am in therapy now but its frustrating not knowing when I'll be better. I can't even praticing putting really in the meantime as the stance and bending to retrieve missed putts hurts.

I hope you and everyone else in this thread recovers soon!
