Well it is time.
I go in for my back surgery Wed at 6:30 am.
I hope it will relieve the pain I have had in my left hip and leg for the last 6 months.

Doc

UPDATE
Surgery went well, was home around noon.
No pain last night, did not need the "Happy" pills!
They had to remove part of the disk that was pushing on the nerves.
Dr said think of jelly donuts, squeeze one and that jelly that comes out is the disk that is pushing on the nerves.
Can only sit for an hour then get up and walk for 10 - 20 minutes. will not be able to drive until 12-29.

Thanks for all your well wishes.

Doc

Good luck to you man,
I remember when my Dad had his back surgery he said they cut the pain right out of him!
I hope yours goes that well.
