February 7, 2017Hey Gang, back from the Arizona House just in time for my bulging disc and back rotor rooter job. Back operation was successful, Well, it doesn`t hurt anymore so I guess it worked. Only in the hospital for 4 days. Dr. said wait a week or two before trying the Harley so I`ll try

February 7, 2017Welcome back screwball. I`m glad your back surgery went well. I have similar issues and am putting surgery off for now. Follow the Doc`s advice and wait.
February 7, 2017Understand about the Dr. Started having problems a couple of years ago. My HMO Doctor followed his companies protocols. First did physical therapy for 6 months. Worked for a while, then symptoms came back. Then Pain specialists. got Cortisone shots in my spine for almost a year. First 2 lasted about 3 months, last one only a month. At that time they sent me to a back surgeon. This time they fixed the pinched nerve and cut the canal between vertebra opening the whole for the nerves..... so far so good.
February 7, 2017I`ve been down the same road except for the surgery. They are going to try burning the nerve path and see if that helps. Supposed to last a year or so.
February 8, 2017Welcome back SB. Real glad to hear surgery went well. I live in the land of old retirees and have heard plenty of back stories. Some good, some not so good, and some bad. I believe, after listening to them all, the doctor is what/who counts.
BTW Dave - I believe it is a little warmer down Phoenix way now.
February 8, 2017Hey, McG! No doubt it`s warmer in quite a few places. It`s -9* and feels like -15* I`m ready for spring!
