Broken Ass Bug's Back Update

Well, the MRI came back and it shows an improvement in my L4-L5 from the last MRI in 2008 - Main reason(s) are that i stopped Running and stepped up the frequency of the Epidurals so the Procedure will not have to take place - DIG IT !!!

The bad news is that my L5-S1 is almost 100% disintegrated and is where all the pain is coming from - I am going to have to undergo a separate procedure (joint rejuvenation or some shit) to try and repair it

So, giving up Dirt will help but not sure I will ever be able to be even close to 70% again

Ride hard and do wheelies bitches!!!!!! (see Vid For How To)

He did but he had some kind of Garlic Dish the night before and his breath made it so not enjoyable - I owe him a bukakke

take it easy dude. back problems are a bitch. my father went through some back surgery a few years ago and they told him it was some genetic deal with the nerve channel in one of the vertebra not being big enough. I've been too scared to go get my back pain checked, just keep downing the aspirin.

HEY - She is 18 now!!! - And if the kid has big lips, blues eyes and relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery, it is a mere coincidence

If medical technology could fix your erection and premature ejaculation problems, I'm sure in the future a bionic back will be invented.
