Rehabbing the Back: Results!
 
I have lost the cane! My Ortho guy approved me to ride, and no need of the cane. XRays look good, and while still a bit sore, I have full mobility!

Your going through the injury recovery process
Step 1: :injured:
Step 2: :50:
Step 3: :winter: (your here):D
Step 4 :speedy:

Congrats on the recovery, now you need the 4,000 miles on the trainer to get in riding shape again :notamused:

Wow, I didn't even knew you got injured again. Is this the same fall that hurt your shoulder?

Heal up. Summer is coming.

No, that was last year. This year, I slipped on the ice and fell HARD!

Just like Mr. Stormcrowe to come up with something new. :)

Hey, I feel for ya. Having back pain is quite a horrible experience. I tweaked my sacroiliac joint mowing the lawn with a push mower, late last summer, and my sciatic nerve still sort of bugs me.

Time was when I would have used the winter downtime to walk for hours at a time. But, because of this pain in my back and upper leg, I could barely walk half a mile without needing to stop, rest and stretch. It has been the worst winter of my life.

The only upside (well...other than that it wasn't a disk related injury) was that I could ride my bike without any significant discomfort. If it weren't for that, I do not know what I would have done. Pain is no fun.

I hope you can avoid injury in the future.

Good for you Tom. Congratualations on the mending!

somebadlemonade 03-26-09 09:27 AM

holy hell tom, good to see you are up and around, i'd wish you luck but from what i've learn luck has only a little part in recovery, the other part is determination, i am pretty sure you have that already.
i well wish you a speedy return to the hobby/sport you grew to love.
