    Grounded...Back Surgery...

    Some of you may have picked up on the fact that I've been battling a bad back over the last few months. Well yesterday was the day. I had a micro lumbar discectomy at L5-S1. I had the same surgery in 05 at L4-L5. After battling back from being overly drugged last night I am finally able to function. I titled this grounded. I can barely get up and move around. My keys have been confiscated and I think my wife took my pocket knife too... LOL Other than extreme back and but soreness I will get through this.

    Cold packs do wonders for pain. I have a machine that pumps water through a system of tubes that kind of add a little compression to a injury. The water can be anywhere from cold to warm. I used it on my shoulder, I fell in love with it, so I purchased more pads, for my knee and low back. It is wonderful. My surgeon gave me the first one.
