    Lisa, I’m so sorry! This is so difficult for anyone, but especially for someone who loves to do these things, and relies on them to maintain weight loss.
    I hope – deeply and truly – that some sort of workaround is found. Maybe a type of therapy, maybe a new medication or a technology. Chronic pain is not a way to live. Wishing you strength and healing. I’m with you hoping for good news.

    Oh, wow, Lisa – that is NOT the news one wants to receive 🙁 It’s hard to accept that our bodies just can’t do what they used to – the grief that comes with that mental and physical adjustment can be a big load. Be kind to yourself, do what you can, and hang in there. Thank goodness you enjoy swimming! Wishing you as many pain-free moments as you can get.
