: I was diagnoised Friday the 30th of June...I fell three times on my back while doing back kicks in a soccer game back in 1975-76... My muscles spasamed really bad back then, the doctor told me that I'd chiped a bone spur and to stay off of m feet for a while...It worked, after a few weeks the spasams went away and I went back to being an active teenager.....My back began getting stif in the 80's and after a right knee repair in 1998 the pain came back, believe me, it came back!!!!

: I've been seeing a Neurologist for the last six months, He had an mri done on my back and dianoised me with a buldging disc.....After three rounds of pointal injections and and 120 hydrocodones per month I decided to go down to Houston and get a second opinion.....My surgon, the one which repaired my knee (great job) found the problem....broken L5 alterior (whatever) vertebra.

: I was told that the break has been there a very long time and that what ever brought it back was most likely recent, excessive stooping, picking objects up improperly, becoming static, etc... (knee surgery).

: My Dr. gave me "The Excercise Progam", I'm starting these silly excercies today....Im going to give them one month and re-evaluate my pain and condition....I'm also going to add bicycling, (I rode 10 miles and it didn't hurt my back or increese the pain) Swimming for at least one hour per day (no impact exercise which works all of the body muscles).....

: Got to get back being active and exercising again.

: I've Heard too many back surgery Horror stories!!!

: I turn the big 4 0 next Month.....I'll let ya'll know how the program turns out around the second week in August!!!!!

: Wish me luck and all prayers aprecieated!!!!

: Sinerely
