Hey Skid - you are going to do great I had back surgery 28 years ago now. Two words of advice that no one ever told me that I wish I had known: go for physio after - it will make a world of difference for the years that you get older, and after surgery there will be pain but don't let it get out of control - keep on top of it and remember to breath when you are being moved. Everyone handles pain differently, but I tend to clench up when in pain and the secret was to breathe WITH and THROUGH the pain when moving - don't be holding your breath like I did at first. All in all, it will go quick. Day 1 is not too bad. Day 2 can be tough. Day 3 is either going to be like day 2 or worse. But after that it's clear sailing. I had a laminectomy and a tumor inside my spinal canal removed. Everyone is different and handles pain differently.

Not saying any of this to scare you, but to inform and to prepare. As I say, I wish someone had shared this with me so I could work with the experience. You are going to do great and I'll be praying for you. Feel free to contact me if you need to chat or if there is something in the way of cheering you on or if something is on your mind.

Put a Cottonwood stick between your teeth

Our prayers will do the rest.

Hold on tight.

Don't forget to bring a pixie with you to fix you drinks. Even if you have pain, you won't care.

Wishing a speedy recovery my friend.

Back surgery sucks. Not gonna lie. But it helps in the long run.

'Bama is lighting up with prayers for you. Get well soon, and don't overdo things.

Wow! Thanks for all the well-wishes.

Here's something lovely I found out at a class I had to go to. People who have this type of surgery tend to get constipated. The lady giving the class gave a recipe for what she calls "the brown bomber": warm prune juice and a shot of milk of magnesia. I'm not looking forward to that lol.

Eat a couple of spoonfuls of coconut oil a day that will help too....

You know... I wasn't truly informed of the constipation issue when I had mine. Wish I had this many people telling me. LoL

On a side note, hope you have someone to assist with cleaning up because that surely wasn't easy. Don't wanna have a skid fest.

Better that than the alternative or harsh drugs.

When you are able, let us know you're 👌!

I have an alternative if your not into prune juice.... Have someone go to WalMart (near the Pharmacy aisle's) and grab a gallon of the Liquid Aloe Vera for about 7-8 bucks. Do a tablespoon mixed in with your favorite drink.

I was as regular as can be with that recipe ('cause I dislike's the prune juice). And it won't matter if it's hot or cold. Side note... you can use that same Aloe Vera for a whole slew of things to get healed up too!

As far as the Magnesium goes (which BTW everyone is lacking in), I've found that a liquid blend by Vital Earth which incorporates plant based Fulvic minerals which boosts the effectiveness and is;

100% vegetarian ingredients - what the body craves* High cellular absorption to support bone health* Gluten free / Non-GMO Alkalizing minerals that sustain proper pH levels* Essential co-factors: Vitamin D3, Boron, L-Lysine, and Natural Bamboo Extract Silica*

BTW... If someone had said to me 10 years ago that I'd be speaking about Constipation on a Conspiracy Site I'd laughed in their face.

Get better soon!

Good luck with the surgery and I hope you're back to full strength really soon!
At least you can cruse ATS instead of watching daytime mind numbing TV.
I too had back surgery and Senna which is a herbal laxative also helps ease constipation.

Also to Johnny Anonymous.

It helps in the fight against the Aliens and their probes.

Not sure what time the surgery was, but I hope it's over and all clear from here.
