Not looking forward to tomorrow

I havent been posting here much lately and have been off the bike for about four weeks do to injuring my lower back on the job. I have been through x-rays, an MRI and now I have to have an Epidural tomorrow of which I am dreading, in fact i'm down right scared. Hopefully though, this will allow me to get back on the bike and lose the weight that I have put back on since i've been laying around the house for four weeks. Wish me luck!!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I've had an epidural, it's not that bad.

Good luck.

My bike actually CURED my lower back pain. I struggled with back pain for a few years before I started riding. None since. Have you tried riding despite your doctors advice?

Right now I can barely stand. Riding a bike is definately out of the question. Hopefully this Epidural will do the trick.

I broke my back in '04 in a motorcycle accident, so I understand your pain. I still have trouble from time to time. Once you can get back on the bike, it will probably help. You may have to modify your riding position some though. I used to get razzed quite a bit about my "upside down" stem, but hey whatever works.
