    That sucks Slinky. I have been battling back issues for close to 20 years. When I get heavier than usual and stop exercising the pain and spasms get worse. The doctors have not helped but I got fed up and finally pushed my way through to getting an MRI to find out what was really wrong. Turns out I have a couple of bulging disks. Doc says ... keep doing what I am doing to alleviate the pain. That means losing weight and ..... hot yoga. I have dropped about 20 pounds and have been going to hot yoga 5 days a week. I highly recommend it. It will be VERY difficult at first but after a couple of weeks I would be shocked if you didn't feel better. Good luck slinky. Plus .... I highly recommend Tizanidine as a muscle relaxer (don't drive after taking it) and Meloxicam as an anti-inflammatory.

    Basically I think the surgeon screwed up. I've been to a number of other doctors since and can easily read it on their faces when they look at the MRI, but no one wants to get involved and get blamed for the screw-up. Pretty sure it's a case of administration over medicine.

    Sorry to hear. You're absence was noticed, but I was hoping it was just a nice long vacation. Good luck.

    So sorry to hear that. If only I had some encouraging words to say that would make things better, but I'm sure I don't. Regardless, you have my best wishes.

    Slinky, I know it's been about a year now since you had your surgery. I was just wondering how you were feeling and if the surgery seems to have helped your condition. I certainly hope it did!

    No idea. I'm just having to go exploring this stuff myself. For my thing I specifically asked and was told no alternative to surgery.

    Tracy Morgan was recently on Howard Stern. One of the first things Howard asked him was when did he first jerk off after his accident. So Slinky I pose the same question to you. After you woke up from surgery how long till you rubbed one out?
