    Steve,

    Best of luck, I hope you are able to get by this without the need for surgery. Either way, I hope your recovery is swift and complete.
    Never say you're #1, Don't let anyone else say you're #2.

    Re: This may be the end for me...

    As the others have said, it's sad to hear your news. Probably a few of the older guys here are already training with backs that have taken a hiding over the years. Do what ever it takes to get it right, naturally if possible.

    I decided not to go for surgery. Waited for inflammations to go down Then gradually rebuilt myself via therapy, pool work, yoga- then began wing chun in 76. Stay in touch.

    Good advice. Surgery has to be the last option. If you do elect the surgical option, hang up the gi. So many people I know have had surgery, felt great, gone back to their previous activities and done it again. Surgery normally is only an option once.

    However, think positive, six months might see you back if full form. Best wishes for your recovery.
    If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right.

    I want to thank all my brothers and sisters in the martial arts on this forum for their kind words of support. And, for the record, I may be knocked down, but I'm not out yet!

    Ha, I didn't think you'd be taken out of the game completely! And remember you're always welcome here, someone with a wealth of knowledge is a boon for us, and a way for you to stay in contact for you.

    All the best, Steve.
    With respect,

    Re: This may be the end for me...

    To echo what Joy mentioned.... my wife's health problems have been pretty much remedied with the use of Bikram Yoga (back, shoulder, knee and wrist problems). I'm no expert, so you should get real medical input on this - but yoga might be a way to help.

    Either way, I hope you continue to post - as someone from the same lineage (WT), I find your posts useful and helpful. You have experience and knowledge, so I hope you continue to share. But maybe that is me being selfish. :-)
