Hi aleet7, thanks for the post!
Pray you'll recover well after the op.
By the way what's DDD?
I'm doing massage, stretching, some jogging / brisk walk, staying relax, sleeping well, to best manage my situation.
Planning to go to a Chiropractor too. A Gonstead Chiro.. understand there's a difference between different Chiros.
Certainly hope not to go for any op.
You take good care of yourself.
We won't know how important health is until we are 'struggling' isn't it
