    Oh Boy, time for another back update !!

    I saw the surgeon today, and he said the mri done a couple weeks ago showed some minor stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal) and that was about it. So, the verdict is, on the 15th of March, I see his partner, to discuss having the discs at L-1/L-2 fused, along with having the stenosis addressed (again.) I just have to wait until I see the other surgeon and hope they can convince my insurance this has top be done. Otherwise I'll have a loose vertebra at the top of my lumbar spine.

    Here is a link that kind of talks about the surgery, it's not gorey btw. The only part that bugged me is seeing the surgeon with a hammer & chisle !!

    Wow Krazy, it is unbelievable how much you have been going through with your back. I hurt my back last year, it was the worst pain I ever had and I was unable to move for a few days. That was horrible and yet nothing compared to what it sounds like you are going through. I feel for you man. Hopefully there is an end in sight. Stay strong brother.

    I hope everything goes well for you. If you need anything let me know. As for the hammer and chisel it was probably to knock some sense into you. We all know how that went.

    Thanks everyone, I think this is related to a couple things in the last few years. In 2009, I was in a roll over accident, and then last year I had a run in with a guy high on lsd and got thrown around quite a bit. I have a hunch one or both of these led to the vertebra la L1/L-2 getting loose. The good thing with this surgery is the recovery time is only a month.

    I'm still fighting, but, then again, this is starting to wear on me a little bit. Sometimes it's hard to be positive after fighting with it this long.....
