    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 :D . 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.

    Definitely thinking about you... and hoping that soon a bee sting will be the most pain you may feel in a day!

    Thank you all, and will as stated previously, keep you all posted. I will be leaving for the initial meeting Sept. 1, with actual surgery 9/3, follow-up on 4th then home after the meeting, they are saying will be walking immediately after surgery, and able to go to work immediately :eek: , excluding heavy lifting for 4 weeks there abouts. Might take a few weeks off just for saftey sakes but depends on how I am feeling, not wishing to over do it. :D
    again thank you.

    Hello all,
    Am back and mostly pain free, still have to take it easy a bit, actually had to drill a hole through the facet joint to reach the impinged nerve root, and was given 6 weeks off to allow the 3/8 inch hole to heal through that hole they placed a camera, a drill, a tool to remove disc matter, a dremel tool of sorts and then out and 2 stitches ( dissolving ) and a band aid and was walking within 3 hours of the surgery. they had to drill as the disc space was too small even for those tools. Amazing, I am a believer, and glad to be back. Still can't sit too long but walking is NO issues. :)

    BARRY..............glad to see you back on the forum. Sounds like all went well and hope a very speedy recovery.

    So are you wearing the big back brace that looks like armor on the front and back?

    Yeah BjornBee--already have them in their winter jacket and wooly underwear lol--back to work, minor pain nothing compared to previously- as for relaxing--I am perhaps the worlds worst patient with little patience but have to re-educate myself on body mechanics and not to muscle everything just to be fast. G3Farms no body armor--not even a band-aid after the 1st week.
