Hi Guy's. I will be going away probably out to California or Florida to see a back specialist and if something can be done I will have surgery. I don't know if anyone here has a back problem but mine is now at the point where I have taken a leave of absense from work to get it fixed, He said hopefully, because there are no garauntees when it comes to your back. I will try to stay in touch as much as I can. I am not sure when I will be leaving but it will probably be in the next week or so. I hate to fly, said the big baby, but a couple of shots of single malt should help me with my courage. I will be in touch so everyone be good and I will let you all know how it turns out.....:wave:

Thanks,There is a place that does laser spine surgery in Tampa so it might be there. I and my doctor are still deciding on the best way to go.

Best wishes on the surgery, I pray it works for you. Ive had a bad back for 20 years, the result of a snowmobile accident. It gives out on me about once a year and I'm off work and on crutches until it heals so I definitely know what you're are going through. The doctors in Canada refuse to operate on it due to the lack of success of conventional surgery. Hopefully the laser surgery will give you excellent results.

Thanks Mike, Sorry to hear about your back also. Maybe a trip to the states for the laser surgery will help. I know what it is like when my back ,like yours, goes out. It is horrible.:doh:

Hey TC, all the best on your back surgery. I am contemplating getting something done on my back also. We have some good back surgeons here in Edmonton at the U of A hospital. I hurt it several years ago when riding our tractor and hitting something on the ground with the blade coming to a dead stop. My back has been bad ever since.

Good luck with the back surgery TC, my prayers will be with you. Back surgery has come a long way in the past few years. Keep us informed on your progress.

Hi guy's. I didn't get any real sense of positivity from the dr I saw in California so I flew into Tampa Florida today and will see some people down here and see how it goes. If I can't get any real satifaction or some kind of confidence that something can be done then I will head back to mass and may possibly have to go on disability which I really don't want to do. Thanks for all the well wishes. I can't get on the net too much because all I have is my laptop and really haven't been on it too much. Talk to you guy's soon, Stay well, Tom.

Good luck & welcome to sunny Florida!!! Guessing this is a welcome change from all the snow.
Sure is much better than dealing with 20" of snow they got back home the last week. :sn:
