I am doing GREAT! For the record, I was declared "permanently totally disabled" as a result of my accident. It took a while to get myself back in shape following surgery with Dr. Feigenbaum, but keep in mind I was out of work for nearly five years. Last week I framed a new roof for a shop I am building. Feel free to PM me, and we can talk on the phone if you like. Or, you can make contact with me through Dr. Feigenbaum's office. Don't waste any more time suffering needlessly!

Have you had surgery? How are you doing in your recovery if you have had the surgery?

I have not had surgery as of yet. I am researching if patients longer than 2 years after surgery how they are feeling today.

So glad to hear you are doing well. I had surgery on Nov. 6 2013. I had 2 cysts drained and wrapped and 2 cysts just wrapped. I am doing well so far. Can I ask what you did in the first 2 months to rehab yourself? I want to do this right and try to minimize scar tissue build up.

A few things you can do: Be kind to your body. Be aware of what you put into it...treat it like a baby, and nourish it as though you are bringing it back to life. Stay healthy: Remain active, but do NOT do ANYTHING that can cause an impact to the spine, or requires you to exert those muscles which affect your spine, as in heavy lifting. Walking, water aerobics, and gentle yoga were activities I engaged in after surgery. Avoid standing or sitting for prolonged periods. Lying flat on your back, sometimes with your knees pulled up to your chest with your hands around your ankles or knees, will help you remain flexible. When using stairs, do it slowly, one step at a time. If you smoke, stop. If you consume alcoholic beverages, use moderation. A glass of red wine helped calm me, as I wanted to get going again, since I had been "cured"! Don't expect that all will return to "normal" within a few weeks. Your body has undergone a major invasive procedure, and will require some to heal and adjust. PM me if you have further questions. And, welcome to the Club!

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I don't know how to PM you?? I am walking 3 to 4 times a day for about 20 minutes each time. I rest the remaining time. I want to get back to being active but I will not push it.

It''s so nice to hear from someone who has had years of success. I medically retired prior to my surgery...I hope down the road I can get back to work. I have been a detective for 15 years but I couldn't pass the physical any more. How do you feel after physical activity? Do you still get flare-ups? If so, what are your symptoms?

Thank you for your help.
