well I was warned ten years ago, first by my chiropractor, then by my med dr.
quit the lifting, 20 years of pain, ten years with severe degenerative arthritis told to find a new job, get out of the health care field that I was in.
if I had listened then and taken better care, I probably wouldent be out of work, with no income facing a major back surgery!

for me it is to late, Ive pretty much blown my lower back to kingdom come.

so now? My dr says no driving even before sx? Im not driving, no bending, no lifting, no this that and the next thing? well Im following it to a T
and will follow post sx directives to the letter also! I learned a really really hard and painful lesson!

    I started one thread a while ago What Not to Do.

    Thats just one that hits the subject.

    It is so true, if we knew back then what we did could wind up leaving us the way we are today....
    Oh, could we just get another chance and turn back the clock.
