    Prayer requests are needed. I had a disc slip between my 5th an 6th verterbra, in th process a piece broke off and has wedged itself between my 5th vert and th spinal chord pinchin th nerve that goes to my right shoulder. I have been dealing w/th pain for over 3 months now, and last week had an MRI to find out what was causing all this pain. Th doc says I cant pick up more than 10 lbs, suck, cuz I havent fished in 2 months due to th pain, and after th surgery I will be laid up for over 2 weeks, w/I dont know how much rehab. I go in July 1 to see spine doc, will schedule surgery then. will keep y'all posted.

    Thanks ahead of time for any and all prayers.

    Prayers are sent for you Brother!!! I know exactly what you're going through. I have a fractured T3 Vertebrae and I've been dealing with it for a VERY long time. They just did an MRI about 2 months ago and found out then it was broke. They said there's an 85%+ chance of surgery to repair it.
    Also, I've got a major problem with my low back, I had Fusion between L4-L5 almost 5 years ago and had a seizure over 3 weeks ago and messed it up bad again. The pain between the 2 has got me down to where I haven't been out of the house in over 3 weeks and not fished in almost 2 months or so. More than likely I'll be going through 2 surgeries next month. I see the Neurosurgeon next month to find out what exactly he is gonna do. Hopefully sooner than the 16th of July because the pain meds aren't helping at all!!!
    Prayers are sent and If you need to talk, PM me, I know EXACTLY what you're going through and I feel for you. Its Pure Hell!!!!!:angry::sad2:

    I have also been there and done that. I have had two surgery's on my lower back. That pain is something no one will understand unless they have been through it. I hope you have as much success as I had with your back/neck surgery Both of you ... Prays and good wishes sent to you both from North Mo.

    With prayers from home and abroad, I am sure to come thru this just fine, just so long as I dont get to ambitious too early try to do too much too soon, I should heal better than before. I am sure I will be back in my boat in no time and runnin trotlines and chasing that ever elusive giant blue once again. Many thanks to each and every one who has sent their prayers and best wishes. I never imagined that I would be askin for prayers for myself, but I am glad that its me an not my kids or wife.

    Keith, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. keep the faith brother. quite a few of the people i know have had back surgery the last few years and it is just amazing what these doctors can do now a days. just remember to listen to what the doctors and therapists tell ya. if ya need somethin or want to vent a little just give a shout.
