Not good news today

Thanks again to everyone who worked on the truck today I appreciate the help more than you know. Now for the bad news. I got my MRI results back today and my outlook is pretty grim. The new scans and report show that I have 3 (no joke this time) herniations in my Thorasic (middle) part of my back. They will NOT be doing surgery since that requires splitting your sternum and taking all your organs out. Please DO NOT post I am sorry posts. I just wanted you folks to know why I might not be on here in a while. Back to the beers, have a good night and please LIFT PROPERLY........

So what you are saying is you have to deal with it forever? There is no option to fix them? Have one for me since I am at work today. Take care and keep us posted.

Cory since they can't find whats causing my lower back pain I am pretty much screwed. I am not willing to risk them taking all my organs out and setting them aside to fix this since my lower back is shot anyway. It just leaves it wide open for more complications. I will just suck it up and live the best life I can............

What! We can just schedule a GTG for that. It can't be that hard can it? Troy has a lot of specialty tools we can use.

I'm with Cory on this one. I believe between Dave, Troy, myself and maybe even Eric with some of his woodworking tools, we should have enough tools to rebuild your back for you. It might not be under the most sanitary conditions (could use the table we used to rebuild your turbo) and the brake cleaner might be a little harsh on the internals but we can do it!!!



All kidding aside, that is a pretty crappy deal all around, I for one will be there for (almost)anything you want or need and I'm sure the rest of the guys will be too.

Damn Mike I cringed, then laughed at the brake cleaner.......I appreciate it guys and all the stuff you have done for me. It truly really really sucks that I have to stand and watch. It drives me nut but now I have to be very careful because one wrong move doing anything can cause those three to rupture. Its bad enough one is pressing on the nerve enough so they can see it on the MRI. You folks are the best, Thanks for everything....

Okay. Probably not nice to make too much light of it. But, that was funny. And on a good note, Napa has 3M brake cleaner on sale for about $2 a can. I used a bunch of it the other day to clean up from my steering project.

Tom, wishing you the best. I recommend you get a second opinion and explore all possibilities, at least so you will be aware of them.

I've never heard of operating on the spine from the front like that. That sounds pretty horrible.

Eric when you meet Tom he can fill you in but he has had trouble for a number of years and has had like 4 surgeries already. He jokes about it pretty good himself so that is why we were all joking with him about it. Just thought I would let you know so you aren't thinking that we are all mean or anything. LOL

It's not gonna be easy Tom. But anything you need help with, I'm more then happy to let you watch! You may think its not helpful, but, outside of Lee you provide the best comic relief!

Hey Mike do you still have those 20' steel rods sitting next to your shop, That right there might work. The last surgery I had my wife asked the surgeon if it would be easier to put a zipper in........LOL You gotta love her.......

Eric they rip on me all the time and I wouldn't have it any other way. Life is what you make of it and I usually am pretty good and quick with a response.....I have had three yes THREE surgeons so I an well beyond the 2nd opinion but thanks for suggesting that.

Good afternoon to all

Yes I do Tom, I have 3 different sizes too, so if the 1/2" stuff isn't stout enough we have 5/8" and 3/4" we could try too Oh, and the zipper would be helpful too.

That has been my motto for some years now, as well as using a tool(machine) instead of your body.
