Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My wife has it as well, which makes me think we were exposed last week.
I slept nearly 20 hours straight, with wake-ups for the bathroom, and to eat a little bit. The bad fatigue lasted a full month and then began to tail off. I've just completed my first three hour ride since(Feb. 1). By all means do not be in a rush to get back to normal. It will do you no good.
Be well in any case
Then too, I've got 35 years on you, so your recovery might be somewhat different.

Stopped to have my oil changed in my new car. They don't have an oil filter for it. how do you change oil for a living and not have this oil filter? And also $110.00 for an oil change? Fml, I'll be doing my own after this one.

If appropriate stretching helps, it's piriformis.

I've had piriformis syndrome and a catastrophic lumbar disc blowout. It can be hard to tell the difference, but the disc was 100x worse and left me with noticeable muscle atrophy.

So curiosity... what car is it, and where did you take it? Dealer, I assume, which is rough but on a new car if it's a completely new filter I can see supply chains causing an issue, but not great... I'd have hoped that most cars at dealers would have a few compatible options. I know you can put a larger on on a lot of Hondas, for example.

That's about what I paid last time. The labor was $20.

I’ve had some weird stuff with my SI joint on the same leg- x-rays look like soap bubbles on it and have had CT scans that point to a benign process. It could have something to do with it, but this is deeper, almost in my hip and only with certain motions.

Deep in the hip with radiation in a pseudo-radicular pattern does sound piriformis-like. I am not a great believer in SI joint inflammation as a cause of neuropathic pain.

Ummm, supply chain issues. Also, more and more cars are making their oil filter proprietary making it hard for after market companies to supply them.

When I worked at an oil shop it wasn’t uncommon for us to have to run to napa or advanced to pick up filters for certain cars. We didn’t see enough of these cars in a year to order a bulk stock and or our supplier didn’t make them.

110.00 seems pretty common for oil changes now a days. I change the oil on all my cars because of this. I can get 5 quarts mobile 1 for 29.00 dollars and an oil filter for 13.99. It takes me 30 mins, why would I pay 100 percent more for someone else to do it.

So you don't have to get your hands dirty and find a place to dispose of oil.

An oil change on the Jeep or Mazda 3 is about $100. An oil change on the wife's Porsche is a little over $200.

The oil change interval on my car has not come up yet.

Oil change on the Dodge is about $100, too, with 7 qt of synthetic. But that's every 10,000 miles, so I figure it all works out. That, and there's a skirt or some other panel that has to be removed to get to the drain plug. And I don't have a garage or driveway to work on it.

I didn't remember you having a lumbar disc blowout. I remember a cervical fusion. My best goes out to you but it appears you've managed well. Kudos.

This is how it goes in the Trsnrtr household:

Wife: Are you going to miss tomorrow’s ride with the boys due to your monthly eye injection?

Me: Yes.

Wife: Oh, OK. Pump my tires and load my bike in the car if you would, please, since you won’t be there to do it at the ride.

Me: Should I fill your water bottles, too?

Wife: That’s a good boy. Don’t forget to charge my Garmin, too.
