I remember seeing that, it still makes me squirm just thinking of it.

I missed that and I'm glad I did. That sounds terrible.

20 days later today is the first day of no pain! I haven't done anything "strenuous" since then. Half afraid to try.

Dr on Monday hopefully released! But I bet I get "another week". Then on the 30th my wife is being induced. So I'll end up having to take another week off anyway

I'm not pain free but I've got 99% of the issues resolved and now I'm just taking Aleve. It's raining down here so of course it has to bother me a little bit at least but I'm ok with that.

Dr. told me another week, told him to make it two, and he said ok. 

 

So I'll go back to work after the baby.

There will be none of that until I go to the vet!!!

Back feels all back to normal now. Carried my son around and moved stuff for the babys room ect. No aches or pains so I think I'm doing good.

Went back to work Tuesday. 2 12 hour shifts so far and no issues other than my belt didnt fit on the same notch and I am noticeably weaker. Not used to so much activity.

No pain other than sore all over from wrestle around a big air drill putting in 4 foot anchor bolts.

That is good to hear. 

 

I'm still dealing with mine but it's still just simple Aleve. I think I'm sleeping wrong as all my issues seem to be in the morning.

Austin,
Are there any Spring Air Mattress Dealers down there?
If so, Check out their gel infused foam mattress. My boss had chronic back issues and this really helped him.

That is good to hear.

   I thought I was going to have to give up mowing. The jarring from the riding mower was getting to be more than my back could tolerate.  Reducing the air pressure in the tires helped for a while. Then the hydro went out on the mower so it was time to start looking for something that rides better. 

   My in-law used to be a Simplicity dealer for many years and I remembered him talking about some of theirs having suspension. Did some research and found they are available and found a dealer with one in stock. The wife and I drove over there last week and both drove it. We ended up bringing home a Regent S with the 48" fabricated deck. I did lower the air pressure in the tires from 10lbs. to 7 and then mowed with it. I have to say the ride is impressive. Did the whole yard (1 1/2 acres) and wasn't suffering when done. Cuts way down on the mowing time as it has a 14" turning radius.

  Neither of us are crazy about using a zero turns in our steep ditches.  This might be an option for you folks with bad backs that enjoy mowing with the tractor type mowers. I believe they have zero turns with suspension also.
