    Hey guys, got the word- having back surgery Aug 20th. They are removing nerve stimulator and checking my 4 bulging lumbar discs. Very worried- will have to rely on the power of the coconuts to get me thru-Love yall lots.

    They say misery loves company, Jaws. I was just passed over for laser back surgery for bulging discs on L-2 and L-3. According to my neurosurgeon, these surgeries have a much more successful outcome than even just 7 years ago. OR if I experience more pain in the future.

    I think that is great reason to remain positive. Wish you well and big, positive vibes from your coconut patch.
