regarding your core decompression. How is it doing now? I had a RCD on 8/9 stage 1 idiopathic cause. I had a spinal and felt pain free, other than post-op discomforts, in 2-3 days. 2 weeks no weight, 2 weeks 15%, 2 weeks 75%, 7th week cane as needed. I have stayed off it as often as possible and in the past 2 weeks the pain is becoming unbearable. I go for a follow-up next week. I was told it is only done in stage 1 & 2. How is your recovery at this point?

Keep up the AA or whatever it takes. I have a close family member just starting and already he is a new person and he doesn't think life is so awful for the first time in years.
