My back surgery went quite well. I am now at home and will be resting up for the next week or a little more. Then i'm just going to have to hit the bench as soon as possible! I have to wear a backbrace for awhile but it should be off injust a couple weeks.
I once again want to thank everyone who responded openly in the "looming operation" thread, and to those of you who were compelled to contact me privately. That has been the biggest contributor to my healing, as well as my attitude during the ordeal. I can't sit upright for very ;ong at a clip just yet so my contributions to the forum will be minimal for awhile.
Gregg- You were absolutely 1,000% correct in everything you told me and I am so gratefull for your advice and the members of this board. Have a spectacular weekend everyone.
