    Best of luck to you and a healthy recovery.
    I know all about spine injuries, it's the reason I don't train anymore. :wtc:

    UPDATE......I am already at home...I can feel parts of my leg that I hadn't felt in a long time. I will be 2 weeks without anytype of lifting at all, but I can walk up to 30 minutes a day in 10 minute periods. I FEEL GREAT. I will be back to work by Monday for sure. I am highly impressed by modern technology and how far our medical field has come. EXCELLENT.......

    After the initial 2 week period I will have 4 weeks of moderate exercise. So basically I can start back in BJJ in 6 weeks. I have to say I probably won't start back until the first of the year so I can get myself back in great shape, especially my core. I weighed in at 283 and I am 6'4. I want to get down to at least 250 in the next 3 months. Thanks for the good wishes. Oh and the issue was the ruptured disk plus they found 3 vertebre bone fragments and one of them was lodged into my sciatic nerve.
