I have been lurking on and off on this board for a while and have registered to celebrate my new notebook which gives my internet while I lie down and thus doesn't tempt me beyond the perscribed sitting limit.
I had a L4/L5 microdiscectomy 5 weeks ago and am looking at slowly getting back to work soon. I also had a L5/S1 laminectomy/discectomy about 13 years ago and that was very successful.
So far on this site advice in the useful things to have post was particularly useful... e.g. i got a grabber tool to pick things up which has been invaluable... though i don't need it as much now
So, yeah, Hello everyone
