    A friend of mine broke his neck about 35 years ago. He kind of recovered, he's what they call a walking quad . He could walk but the right side really drags. Limited arm use, etc

    He just called. Fell and crunched L6 vertebra, over the tailbone a couple weeks ago. So now it's back surgery time. Mom had the same thing in her neck. They put an airbag in to get the bones off of each other then put some kind of cement in there.

    Hope it helps

    I don't like the idea of anyone touching my spine even though I do get pretty nasty back pain . Like tonight, standing up takes a minute. Arthritis and 30 years of commercial masonry will do that

    However, this guy has had lots of scalpels jabbed in him . But they're doing his as outpatient surgery. That kind of surprises me

    Everybody heal.

    A friend of mine lived across from the spinal clinic in Atlanta. I always prayed I'd never have to go in that building.

    Life is red of tooth and claw. Live long and prosper.

    The state of the art has certainly changed in the last 35 years, they may be able to go in and improve his overall lot.
