    I live in an apartment, we have a pretty good sized dog living with us, we have had him since a puppy..He does not like other dogs:wink:

    Well just so happened my wife opened the front door today, an standing in our yard was a small poodle type dog...My dog saw him and out the door he ran after him:crazy:

    My wife yelled that our dog was loose and chasing another dog, witout thinking I bolted out the door as fast as a 280-lb fat man can run!!!!!.

    I chased them around the apartment complex in my socks I was running full speed when I remembered, I just had back surgery!!!!!!

    About the same time I steped in a small hole:crazy: I thought I was going down, or at least feel alot of pain...nope nothing I felt great!!!!! I finally caught up with my dog a feww 100 yds latter...heck I feel better than I have in years...And I still had 14 staples in my back....

    I get them out thursday, and this dude is fishing saturday.....If my wife lets me!:wink:

    Thats awesome brother I bet you are pumped but I would recomend doing some bait fishing friday and see how you feel come saturday. You dont really think about how much twisting on your back you do while you are fishing when you cast out and set the hook

    Stop scaring the neighbors and be careful. I cant say much for back surgery but with my hip I thought I was ok doing things until the next day. I felt good atm but not so good later, LOL.

    Just be careful Jack!!! I'm hoping to go Fri and Sat if I'm allowed also...:roll_eyes::wink:

    I wish they would have just went ahead and done surgery on mine, I'm getting sick of not sleeping and it hurting all the dam time! Plus its too hot to be wearing this brace all the time.....:confused2:

    Another thing I forgot to mention, get the Dr. to write you a script to go fishing. If anything is said just pull out the script and show her. Usually works for me.....:roll_eyes::wink::smile2:

    It sounds like you are ready Jack!!!! I had back surgery in 1990 and was fishing within 2 weeks and even trimmed a house after 1 month. Just take a comfortable chair. My worst pain came from too much sitting. Actually the more active you are the quicker will be your recovery. Good Luck to ya brother!!!!

    Jack,
    A word to the wise and I am speaking from experience here:
    Now is the most dangerous time of all to re-injure your back. As you found out with the dog, it is so easy to do things without thinking and that is what may get you into trouble. Be really careful how you land that hawg...W

    Go get 'em Jack. Probably means all the fish will be so scared that I won't be able to catch anything this weekend.
