Sorry to hear that; hope you get a full recovery.

Mods? Do the ones in the garage waiting to go on the car count?

Many thanks to my fellow Veterans; I am honored to be a part of your ranks.

Get some good Physical Therapy and/or drugs.

You're not going to need surgery on that are you?

Good luck bro, and keep us posted.

Surgery? I hope to hell not. Pain down the leg? Yup. It'll go shooting down my left leg like fire. Really does suck. I've just recently started seeing the back-cracker, and so I hope that helps.

Oooh yeah, been there, done that.

About 10 years ago I threw my back out. Didn't really realize it for about another year, just dealing with that "shooting pain down the leg". Finally one day I got up out of bed, stood up.... didn't make it all the way up, and hit the floor screaming.
Done deal.

I called my mom for advice (she having been an R.N. for quite a long time) as to whether I need to see a doctor or a chiropracter. She said try the chiropracter first, then see how it goes.

I passed out in the reception area.

A month of twice-weekly visits got me on my feet (and back to work) again, but little twinges of pain lingered for the next ten years.

About two months ago it made me go back for one last time......now I'm good as new, and sincerely happy about the results. Should've went back years ago.

Best of luck with this, I hope everything turns out good.
