I took about a two month hiatus from the site due to some family/personal issues. However, before I had taken my hiatus, I was dealing with a re-herniated disc. I did have surgery to deal with that disc on Oct. 31st. Everything went well, and recovery is also going well. I am in a point in my recovery where I am still dealing with some residual nerve pain, but it is not preventing me from living a "normal" life. My doctor thinks that the nerve pain will eventually go away, and I can get back to doing regular activities.
