went to the doc today to hear that i have to go back into the hospital for some fairly major surgery on my neck where i fractured the 2 vertabra. apparently the disc was crushed too badly to just leave it. theyre oding something that i understand is fairly new still, theyre actually putting in a new disc rather than fuse the vertabra. sooooooooooo i will be out of commision for the rest of the summer at the least.

No way
they are replacing the disk itself?
I didnt know they could do that
I just tore one of mine (at L4-L5)
cuz it herniated so bad it split right along the spinal cord.
Thats why I am out of commission and cant ride at all for a while (too long!)
Just when I was about to start trying my slow hand at racing too.....
I had no idea they could replace the disk.
I am curious to know how it goes so please give us the report.
Good luck to all who are on the mend.

surgery went great, i go home tomrrow and the docs say i'll be back at 100% in less than 2 weeks.
the ony real pain i'm having now is at the surgical site where the incisions are, nothing more than a light dull ache inside.
sooner the better as far as i'm concerned, i HATE sitting or laying around doing nothing.

fat people are harder to kidnap
