I survived 14hours in the plane

Hi everyone. Just a quick update for all of you who have been helping me so much since my L5S1 herniation in April - well 3 months after my m.d. I nervously boarded the plane to Hawaii.

I made it!

I took my trusty back support chair thingy and got up and did a few laps of the plane and survived without any sciatic pain.

I had a wonderful holiday (just didnt go sky diving or surfing or anything stupid).

I was a little bit more uncomfortable on the way back, but nothing a little Lyrica didnt fix.

So i just wanted to post to give some hope to those of you in the same circumstances. I am also back at work as I can now sit longer than 2hours (a plus).

I hope you are all doing well.
Thanks again for all your help
