Well here's one I never thought I'd haveta ask...
It took 35 years of hard physical work, but looks like my lumbar has made a call for pampering
I herniated L4,L5, and S1 this past winter. Was just curious if any other CRF's Only members have gone thru successful recovery and are back riding once again. I actually have a buddy who has 4 bad discs in his lumbar (also a lifetime of hard labor) and has recovered and been riding for years! So there's hope.
Determined NOT to opt for surgery, and neatest thing so far is my Doc rode his share of mx - so he understands the passion. I'm figuring at least 6 months off the bike. (gotta do the epidural shots soon) but not giving up hope by any means!
Just 1 more reason the medical community looks at our sport and asks, "why?"
