    I just talked to my Dr. My MRI wasn't very good at all. My Thoracic Spine, T-3 has lost a height and mass of 20%+ and have 2 severe bulging discs in that area. I asked about surgery and he said it was borderline, that we'll talk more on the 29th this month. He also said that if the pain meds and treatment wasn't helping enough(which their not) then surgery is a definite possibility. I don't want another back surgery, had one and my neck is unevitable just when I agree to do it.:sad2:
    Please say a Prayer or have a good thought for me.
    If this happens, my fishing will be done for a while.:sad2:

    Thanks You All!!!

    Well John really hate to hear this, will add an extra prayer and always a thought, Just know that your NOT the only one "rowing this boat" (been split open 4 times myself) if ya need to chat or just want to tell fish stories drop me a line, Been there done that still doing it myself, it s**ks to say the least, but just what are we gonna do? I hope ya don't have to get cut on, but if that is your only option left then make sure your ready to do it! Maybe one day we can get together and go hook into some of them fish that we can't reel in :crazy::smile2:. And you KNOW just what I am saying too! :wink: be good bro! it WILL get better, atleast that is what they keep telling me :roll_eyes::big_smile:

    I'm going out in the morning, nothing is gonna stop me from trying to submit a lot bigger fish for the fish off. I may be in pain but i'm ready to take one for the team!:wink::smile2:

    Wish me luck, I'll have live bait and frozen bait. Tonight were supposed to get over an inch of rain tonight and the river should be on a steady rise. Hoping the Cats are biting!!!

    I figure no pain, no gain!!!

    Wish me luck that all goes well!!!:wink::big_smile:
