They are pretty good at replacing discs anymore. Might wanna get it looked at and see if they can fix it.

*nods* Until recently, the tech was a little iffy (damn near medieval, when I was in middle school).

    There have been a few orthopedic corrective surgeries in my extended family over the years.  The general consensus of the participants is " If you can avoid surgery - do so." .   There's your idea of what the surgery and recovery and prognosis post surgery will be, there's the surgeon's idea of what all those thing will be and finally there's what actually happens.

    I am just speaking from the experience of a good buddy. He had two lumbar discs replaced with the new articulated discs. He is back on the mat in jiu jitsu within 6 months. His pain has been reduced almost completely and his mobility is better.

    Compare that to my father that had discs fused in his neck, and he still has issues.

    Things have improved tremendously.

    Glad to hear it.  I was referring specifically to a couple of joint replacement surgeries - one of which had to be redone after less than ten years.  It was awful and the recipient said afterward that if he had known what he was in for he would have never agreed to it.

    Oh working discs again... what would it be like?

    I've destroyed my two lowest discs... If I slack off on exercising or gain too much weight The top of my spine shifts 6" to the left of the bottom and it'll take me a month to get back to walking normally.
