Guys I have gone from bad to worse on 2 situations, I am having a bout with the beloved IRS and my worse problem is my stupid back, I've been in and out of the hospital and eat Vicodin like its candy, I am just telling you this as the reason for the absense, some days I am better than others, I got an old RD to make parts for as its a nice sit down deal and have a couple people that are doing stuff for me, I am not telling you this for an pity or anything like that, its been very depressing to not be able to do things like I use to or want too, either way after a surgery maybe things will get better,

Take care of yourself gus; get that back healed before try to push it too hard. Warmer weather and some riding can be your rehab.

Back problems are a bitch... hope you recover at least well enough to be comfortable!

When you're better, lets get this Aussie distributor thing organised so I can take some weight off you.

Hey, Gus - like you mentioned - a lot of people have back surgery, but as far as being curative - (in general) I believe it's only about 30%.

Some back problems absolutely need surgery, and some don't. Keep in mind that if you see a back surgeon - he will most likely recommend surgery.

I've done anesthesia for hundreds of back surgeries, and I've had a broken back - so I'm also a patient. I've been able to put off my back surgery for 9 years and counting.

I don't know what your specific back problem is, but the #1 recommendation I would make is to get down to your ideal body weight (IBW). Depending on if you are overweight, losing the weight could actually make your back pain tolerable without drugs. The other issue is that if you are overweight and have a back surgery, your fixed back won't last long with the extra weight.

If you are scrawny like me, and are having lots of back pain - you'll most likely need an intervention.

If you have questions, I know very good back surgeons that I can ask for an unbiased opinion.

Hope things get better soon - we need you healthy to help us build fast bikes!! :D

Good luck with your back problem mate and hope you have a speedy recovery.

I've had minor problems with my back and that is bad enough :sad:

Hey Gus I have been where you are man, and it's demoralising, I'll second that. I will say though that eventually it should settle down. When I had my op (keyhole micro discectomy) the doc said it would take 3 to 6 months for the sciatica radiating down my leg to calm down, and about the same time for pain at the lumbar source to ease.

He was partly right. Seems my body doesn't like proscribed healing intervals and it took more like a year. But, touch wood, eventually I was leaping around like an 18 year old again!

Hang in there buddy. Shit happens to the best of us, but there is joy around the corner.

All the best mate,
Steve
