I have a bad back - very bad at times and have finally been to a seriously credible professor to guage whether or not surgery would be beneficial. Not that I was hanging out to go under the knife but you know how we all want a miracle cure so we can get on with our lives.
Well disappointment ensues - although I have a fairly serious lack of disk space there is nothing that can be done until it gets much worse. The only advice that I was given was to basically give up my lifestyle/artistic endeavours - like that is going to happen - lose a ridiculous amount of weight and build up strength in stomach and back muscles. Easier said than done and of course I can't give up my new artistic life.
