It was a bad summer for me. After dropping 40+ pounds I hurt my back - bulging disc pinched sciatic nerve. Ouch. After injections in the spine the pain went away, but I had to stop lifting. As I was ready to get back at it I had to get 2 surgeries for bladder cancer.
Ok, getting a little flabby, but finally ready to get back at it. No, my friggin’ Crohn’s Disease hits and I get surgery on my gut. So, no gym for fear of hernia. Ok, finally back at it, although avoiding going heavy still because of the abdominal surgery hernia fear. I put about 20 back on all told. I am having troubles getting focused on diet and exercise and I do still have a bit of fear about my back. Anyone come back from serious bullshit and have tips? THANKS ALL.
