    Back surgery

    last April I had a disk L4/L5 take a crap on me. I finally decided to go under the knife. Monday morning the doc will basically clip off the part of the disk that is buldging out and hitting a nerve. That nerve runs down my right leg.
    I am tired of felling like I have a knife in my right butt cheek and a numb foot.
    I haven't been able to work out much. Limited exercises, blah, blah.
    It's an out patient operation. Doc said I could do cardio within days and back to lifting in 4 to 6 weeks.

    Anybody else had this procedure? Outcome.

    my dad has this surgery, he was able to get totally back to normal in a month or so.. i dont think cardio should be much of a problem at because my dad was very much back to normal after a few days too. he was very very happy after his surgery, i know what your going throuh because that disk problem sucked for him, he was in a lot of pain.

    good luch with it
    workin to get r-r-ripped to shreds.

    I have complete disc herniations at L4/L5 and S1/S2 and opted not to get surgery since it could come out worse post op. I also have lost most of the feeling in my left foot due to sciatica but am used to it now. It's actually kind of cool, I can kick the shit out of anything with my left foot and not feel a thing...

    LAM does that prevent you from doing some lifts?
    What this means is that when we drop a ball and it falls to the ground, it wasn't the ball that moved (down to the ground), but the ground that moved (up to the ball)
