The sacralization of the L5 on my spine


I had my follow-up consultation with my doctor yesterday. I also got the result of my lumbar spine x-ray, result shows that I have a sacralization of the L5 on S1. At first, di ko maintindidihan yung result, I was asking myself, “nakakamatay kaya ito? or kelangan kaya ito ng operasyon? A lot of things were running in my mind, until I brought the results to my Orthopedic surgeon. The doctor explained to me that the sacralization of the L5 on my spine is congenital, which makes me prone to back pains. Di ko lang daw nararamdaman masyado when I was younger kasi konti pa lang ang mga activities ko. But now, since I’m into different strenous activities, I’ve become succeptible to back pains.

Since I’ve been experiencing back pains in the past 3 weeks, the doctor advised me to take a 4 day bed rest and continue my medication, if hindi magbago, I need to go through physical theraphy. Hay… magastos huh!? Hehehe! But still, I’m so thankful kasi di naman pala malala ang sakit ko… It’s congenital and wala naman talaga cure, so, with proper exercise and staying away from strenous activities, I could get away with severe back pains that I’m experiencing right now.

Kaya ko kaya umiwas sa mga adventures ko?

I would appreciate if you could leave some comments... Thanks a lot!

Cavite - Mt. Pico De Loro - Oct. 17-18, 2009


"Don't change the mountain... Let the mountain change you..." - a quote learned from Mt. Pico de Loro

Considered the highest mountain in the Cavite province, Pico de Loro is the highest point within the boundary of Cavite and Batangas. The view from the summit is awesome, facing the sea on the north-eastern side of the Manila Bay area. You can actually see ships passing by the Batangas and Bataan shore lines while the entire Batangas and Cavite on the south-eastern side will offer you a magnificent view of the south-eastern mountains like Batulao and Talamitam.

This is my 3rd climb up a mountain, at the same time the birthday climb for a good friend - Ayie... With me are my old and new "Social Climber" friends - Ayie, Ed, Alex, Julius, Bheng, Philip, Mitch, Mart and April.

Pinoy Holidays : 2 long weekends in November

On Wednesday, Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita reminded the public of the holidays previously proclaimed by the President. -- with a report from Willard Cheng, ABS-CBN News
