Jerry, Sorry to hear that your going for surgery. ACDF?

Yes C3 to C7, he has 4 of them to repair.   :-\

Once this is over with I should be able to enjoy riding again.  Right now the pain is 24/7
Best of luck brother!
I've pushed it off longer than I should have.
Mine is 4-5, 5-6 and 7-T1 being nearly bone on bone. C6-7....what disk? There's supposed to be a disk in there?
Just finished (December 4th) 'pain management' shots and the "burn the nerves with an RF electrode" into 5, 6, 7 and T1 on the right side.
Shots last a week, electrode 'should' last months to years.
Left side electrode set is on the 3rd of January.
All the shots and electrodes are doing is killing the burning down both arms, and moving surgery from an elective item to emergency necessity. Eventually.
NOT looking forward to it.
Let me know how it goes.
The electrodes are the most painful thing I've ever had done being conscious.
Being married was easier.

Maybe I'll schedule mine for sooner rather than later.

Damn son, why not just go ahead and get the operation?

Thanks for the well wishes and good luck on your torture   ;D

Cats.
18 17 cats.
And a dog.
No one here to take care of them, so I schedule life around them.
The few days I took for RWTW gave me such a mess to clean up it nearly wasn't worth it.
But, it WAS SECOG...and it was Georgia....so I sucked up and broke out the PineSol.

Dr. said surgery in early 2017.
I said options?
He said...'maybe' chiropractor.
Chiropractor has done wonders with everything else, mentioned something about a 'flexibility of an 18yr old...(how he knew about my basement...I have no idea)
But the neck..."oh, hell no".
Pain Management 'might' be able to help.
Started them in August.
Last 'treatment' is in January.
If that doesn't hold, we'll be selling bikes come February and surgery over the summer when the animals can be entirely outside while I heal up.
If it wasn't for the cruise control on the wing...I'd have given up a while back.
Connie...she won't see me as a rider again. Wrong positioning for the neck.
Let me know how flexible you end up, and how it affects your riding.
And if you find an 18yr old...tell her she's in trouble, puts the lotion on her skin or she gets the hose.

It's now 12 days until our Last Blast. If you have not registered, please do so ASAP. We may have a surprise visitor.

Bring a friend or friends - they will be welcome.

If the weather is crappy (rare for this event) come in the car. Drive if you must, but be there. Yes, you joined for the bike, but we are the people you stayed (are staying) for. You will be missed.

See 'ya

None pre-ground, all in bean form.

Some sort of Kona blend. The bag is gone, just have a few beans in the grinder. Got it at Publix, blue bag.

Barissimo(from Aldi's) single source from Peru. (probably my favorite, but I like them all)

Sam's Choice Colombia Supremo

Eight O Clock original

Eight O clock Central Highlands.


Any preferences?

I've purposefully stay away from the pricier stuff as I'm afraid I'd like it.
