I will have to take pain meds when needed.

Goeie nuus Tom. Probleem is wanneer die pyn begin het jy so baie pille nodig dit vat n hele ruk vir dit om in te skop. Ek is aanbeveel om elke dag pyn medikasie te vat instede van net wanneer ek dit nodig het en ook inflammetoriese medikasie permanent. Dit help soort van.

Jy moet wanneer jy weer n seizure kry die Voltaren/Cortozone konkoksie laat inspuit. Ek belowe jou jou rug gaan jou vir maande nie pla nie. Try dit net een keer.Vra daai spesialis voor jy teruggaan wat sy opinie is daarvan as jy jou in die US moet laat spuit.

Absolutely brilliant news concerning your back. You at least have a plan of action now.

Thanks to everyone for the replies, appreciated!

I will hear what the physiotherapist advises other than the core excersises.

Any change in profile like changing shoes gives me back pain, so I have 2 x pair of running shoes that are the same. The same goes for work boots etc. The gradual inserts may help over time but this is not what caused the injury nor the pain. The lateral (side ways) curve of the spine was caused due to the shortened leg of 17 years already but the pain issue mainly result due to the damage which is the 2 x tears in discs and the spinal cord bulges and then over work thereof. The remedy will be core strength so that Muscles will take the strain of the heavy lifting hence reducing the stress on the vertebrae and core.

Tom, ek weet jy is lief om te draf, dink jy nie dit dra by tot die pyn in die rug nie?  'n Ander opsie om fiks te bly is fietsry of enige iets anders wat die drukking/stampery op die rug verminder.     

Correct wrt long distance running; sadly not good at all.
Shorter distances is however acceptable and more so on a treadmill
He has explained to me the typical triangle as result of a shortened leg and that is
Lateral concave curve of the lower spine, hip cartilage and tendon issues on shortened side and knee problems on opposite side.  The knee gives me a hard time for a while already hence the fitment of cruiser footpegs on my bikes bash plate soon.

Thanks guys  :thumleft:

A good joke but @Blou Zebu  :lol8: and I see it to lighten the mood of the thread but so not me.
I know very well to treat a lady with respect and have mostly cooked, done the washing and housekeeping or to the minimum shared the chores.  :3some:
Like most of you know; I'm single for many years but still love to treat people every now and again with fresh baked and so on.
Obviously was not near perfect hence ending up being single but maybe I'll hook up one day in a good romance again. I sometimes feels quite ready for that, no man is an island right 😆

This morning Desertfox dropped off some footpegs and I fitted them to my bike late afternoon, now I can stretch my legs on longer rides!  :biggrin:

You misunderstood! She is protecting your back!  :imaposer:

My coccyx stuitjie is giving me a hard time on the comfy DR seat. Probably gout related. Already on allupuranol 300mg and colchicine. It really removed the pain from my feet though

I have been to my physiotherapy session today, and to say the therapist was shocked is probably an understatement
Like 1 of the Wd's recommended (can't recall who) she wants met to start using an insert in my shoes (short leg side)
Apparently (like the doc said) I'm only articulating between L4 and 5 and that puts tremendous strain on my back and as result pressure on the nerve tunnel (foramen) which results in the radiated pain in my bud.
So she examined, measured, manipulated and then done her thing with the special apparatus they uses.
I was in pain on arrival but left without a hint of pain, honest truth!
I went directly to the gym for a moderate workout and now I'll take it slow till Monday's double session.
She has explained it in such a great way like no one ever before bit my English will fail me here.
I can do (and did in the gym this morning) 2 sets x 50 situps easily as well as the outside back muscle excersise machine.
Since Army I have never stopped doing situps and can go on.....so that is (let me try) like a tin of fruit. The outside wall is the abdominal muscles and the back muscles (2 thick muscles next to spine) and the bottom and top of the tin to keep it strong is on the top the diaphragm and muscle group and at the bottom muscles from the pelvis that foes up the inner core of the spine.
So that's where Tom's problem is....them top and bottom lid of that tin!!

So then she wants to loosen my shortened Achilles tendon and work on me opposite knee.
Respect for a remarkable professional woman, I got all my trust in her.

You have a good weekend friends  :thumleft:

Good news for a change, Tom. At least the issue has been identified and can be remedied. 

I'm sure a big relief for you.

Yes @subie Tristan, Inaccessible and Nightingale is close to each other.....you can see them from the main island Tristan da Cunha and Gough is 400 see miles away but the same group.
No landing allowed at Gough and none at Inaccessible but organized tours on both Tristan and Nightingale

Very sensitive habitat

Nope, my Z750 was 110k km and 10 or 11 years with me. I will not keep the NC much longer, looking for a more dirt orientated bike but probably after my next rotation. Something light because of my back issues, maybe the Honda XR300L and then a small car or bakkie.

The bike that was the most fun to own ever was the Triumph Sprint 1050. The XC800 close second and then the old Z750, maybe moreso because of memories  :3some:
