Twice lately i was that close of bying it, found prayers is a big help, it calms you down.
Marc, pray to whom you like, Budha, God or any other, but pray.
Wishing you the best, will be on my laptop on the fifth of November waiting to hear from you and that all went just fine

I had pain, not in my back, but rather in my right leg. Towards the end it hurt even to rub something against my leg. I had to postpone a trip to visit my terminally ill dad for his birthday (he passed away a few months after his birthday) so it was heartbreaking, tough, unfair.
Luckily I had a very good surgeon who dealt with one of the 3 hernias, which was the one causing all the issues. Luckily he was very good, and after a couple months back of rehabilitation I got my life back.
One thing I'll say though, you mentioned things got worse when you lifted some bags.... do not lift anything. I don't anymore. I can't go back to the pains and constant tablets for it, so I am very strict about not carrying anything heavy. Luckily I have a partner who deals with the suitcases when we travel....
Not a religious man, but sending you all the best.

I believe in God, so God bless, keep us informed.

The good luck is best kept for the recovery and rehabilitation. My big surgery last year (CABG) was over (to me) in the blink of eye, as will yours be. After that it's a process of getting you mobile fast and then pushing the boundaries day by day. My best wishes for that as the surgeons will have the other stuff covered.

2. Unless I'm carrying a "lazy man's load" after shopping, the heaviest I usually lift is a gallon of milk or my laptop. I hate having to ask for help as the majority of people look at me and only see a lazy fat guy.
