I'm glad you're getting better, too, JKHSCHULTZ. I'm going through some terrible back pains due to a pulled muscle or back strain from moving furniture and doing heavy lifting, but I hope there won't be a need for surgery. I'm taking it easy and taking pain meds only when it becomes unbearable.

I too have back issues... and trying to stay fit. I had to take steroid shot treatments....and well you can imagine the rest... I blew up even more and the weight is solid as a rock...its a challenge but I am hanging in there...
Well I have had two bad back episodes. The first one was in the middle of May and the doctor said I should be fine with moderate exercise. Then the first weekend of June I had another bad episode and the doctor said no exercise for a while until I see the physical therapist. So I have been going for about a week and a half now and have about another two weeks of time to go. But the physical therapist says i can start with moderate to easy exercises again and I just have to build myself back up with exercising. Which is great but I am missing out on many things these last three weeks. But at least I am getting better.
