So went to the surgeon this week, following a complete seize of my back. It happened with a crippling, down to the floor, not moving event. I've had these before, but this was out of the blue, actually feeling pretty good. I figure it would come on the heels after a shitty go out with close outs at the spot.. So the prognosis- L3, L4 compressed and bulging, L5 gone with the nerve being crunched by the L5-S1, which means Disc replacement. Apparently, they go through the stomach..Not sure how I'm feeling about that.


  1. Damn, man. sorry to hear about that. there should be some physics law that says that these kinds of things cant happen to surfers, due to acquired good karma.

    my knees are on the same plane as your back.

    wish you a safe and full recovery.

  2. Thanks for the words..recent lack of water time, due to travel had me feeling good, then POW.

  3. Oh, that just sucks!!! I'm so sorry to hear that. I've been there (but it was with my knee). I know you will rebound from this and then we'll all be getting out of your way! LOL!

    Let me know if you need anything! Anything! (No, you cannot have my new Cooperfish Flexpig.)
