    Big day for me tomorrow..


    Most of you don't know but I have been having some problems with my back.. I have a degreative disc and here in the last month it has been causing my right leg to go numb after standing for about 5 to 10 minutes.. makes my job a bit of hell because I can't walk around without looking like the hunchback of ND.. anyway tomorrow I am having an epideral done to inject a steriod into the disc that has slightly bulged to see if that will return me back to semi normal state.. So with that said.. I might not be around for the next couple of days.. I will have to see how I can stand sitting down.. Just thought some of you might want to know.. and I will keep you posted for those of you that might have do have this done in the future. .and I hope that it will be NONE of you.. trust me it hurts like a bitch..

    Good Luck Matthew, speedy recovery my brotha.

    Back problems are the worst.

    Just curious Matt, is it a "one visit" treatment, or is there a schedule of injections?

    Matt, a bulging disk is a chiropractor's bread and butter. I had one pulled right in place by a chiropractor in just one visit over 15 ears ago. Walked around with back pain for over 6 mths—one visit later, it was gone.

    JB,
    Tried the Chiropractor.. he has really worked on it but it is one that is too small of a bugle to for him to be effective on.. hence the shot in the back.. I know I wish he could have fixed it also..

    good to here man. don't push it to hard though, i'm sure the doc filled you in on that. nothing worse than reinjuring an old injury mid way through rehab, and having to start all over again.
    what a mind !@#% that is!

    Good luck with your back.

    I had the same procedure done in 12/99. 1 herniated disk and another one that was on it's way.

    Hey Matt: How RU feeling? Hope the good Doc could help. Did you have it done again? Best wishes. I've never had back troubles, so I consider myself lucky. Looking forward to seeing your post soon.

    Well it has gotten worse really but I am going back for the dye test on the 19th to see what is really going on. Doc said because of my size the MRI's are grainy and hard to see any detail.. so another fun freakin day in the hospital with a needle in the back

    I hope your situation takes a turn for the better. Back injuries suck. I just recently re-injured my back while squatting (felt pain shoot up lower back). It hurt for about a week, but has gotten better. Pain is gone all together and I was ablr to squat with no probs this week. Once again good luck to you Matt.
