Bobby Buggs Posted March 3, 2005 Report Share Posted March 3, 2005 Well time marches on as they say and my 41 year old back blew a L5 disc in Early Feb. I dont even know how it happened but you could have cut off my right leg and I would have been happy. This all happened 1 week before my trip to Crested Butte and NO this year I didnt get the trip insurance. So I get a Injection in the L5 nerve root and off to the Butte. NO problems at all while riding just when sitting at dinners. Now 1 month out I still have what they call Foot drop and numbness in my right foot. Its obvious that the nerve is still in some sort of impingement but I really dont have any pain. Where the Hell am I going with this... Well I am getting another injection Tuesday and Hope to be a Okemo Wednesday night to "GO WILD" for a few days with the crew. Has anyone had this type of back problem and how did it work out for you.
