Re: How many of you do physical work?
I have a desk job. I sit 8 hours a day so my job is not physical. i had back surgery 10 weeks ago for a massive ruptured disc, L5-S1, I had a Laminectomy/discectomy. I herniated my disc ripping out a rose busch in my back yard. I Just didn;t like it anymore and it was dying so I tried to yank and yank and yank. I never did get the rose out, but I sure did a number on my back. Sailed me right over to the ER room where I was operated on right than and there. I had a serious spinal injury that required emergency surgery.
I know for a fact that mowing lawns is very hard on your back, i bet you have worn out your disc's mowing for so many years. It's just not worth it to risk your spine, it's the only one you got and it controls your entire life. you may have to find another field of work, or at least take a break. I know how painful a bad back can be. what is wrong with your back? have you had an MRI?
