Will be away from the computer for awhile. am undergoing endoscopic spinal surgery for 2 protruding disc, severe foraminal narrowing, and of course arthroisis( arthritis ). If all goes well, will be relatively pain free Sept 3 after the proceedure--something that hasn't happened for over 13 years. Kinda looking forward to it . Please wish me a bit of luck, and I will certianly let you know whats going on. With all thats been happening I haven't been able to pay as much attention to this site as I would have liked to, please bear with me.
