tomseal6, sorry to hear about your condition. Had the same problem a few years ago. The pain was really bad. Did the therapy sessions and saw the neuro surgeon, who good for me took a wait and see attitude toward surgery. After more therapy and lots of diligent praying, the pain flat went away, and thank the Lord, has never returned.
I hope you won't need the surgery. a friend had it and almost ten years later is still messing with the surgical results.
Best to you on improving and getting back on that bike, asap. tomp/dd50
