I don't need surgery. That's is the good news. The bad news is they don't know what is causing the pain. After scaring the shit out me last week, my doctor says the scans all look really good and that nothing is getting pinched. They think the nerve that was pinched before the surgery (two years ago) may be flaring up (which is fairly common, and painful) so, more meds, physical therapy for a few weeks and possibly some epidural cortisone shots. I plan on medicating with Corona, Pacifico, and Mexican food as well.
I am allowed to start riding, on pavement and some light off road, in a week or two provided it doesn't hurt. He advised I build up slow, and go from there. Huge relief!
Man I am tired. Thanks for all the well wishing. I can not thank you all enough for all the good wishes. Sorry for the fuss. Please feel free to beat the shit out me in the comments, now that we know I am not going to die!
