    I'm going to have an operation this December sometime, on my back. According to the consultant blokey, there's a 2% chance I might have "neurological complications" (i.e, leg paralysis). It will be 2 weeks before I'm allowed to go back home, and then 6-8 weeks before I regain some vague "normal" motion. It will be 3 months before I'm allowed back onto a tennis court (I play quite a lot of tennis at the moment), and 9 months before I have enough movement and rotation to be able to hit the ball like I can now. I will have to undergo two operations- one to remove some of the disks from my spine so it is completely loose, then I will have to lie flat on my back for a week, and then the second operation to something weird to my back. I will have to wear a plaster thing round my stomach for a few weeks after the op to keep it stable. I would perhaps not have needed the operation to straighten my spine if I hadn't played so much tennis! Now your operation seemed quite straightforward, now, didn't it? Lol, hope you recover well mate

    Noodles is one god damn great idea, I hadnt thought of them...thanks.

    The worst bit of it all was the worry before the operation. I nearly craped myself when they brought the trolly to take me to theater. The worst bit though was waiting in the anesthetic room while they cleared up the op theater, it sounded like when you are near the kitchen in a pub and all you can hear is the clinking of knives and fork's except I knew they were tools for me... I nearly jumped up and ran out the hospital
    That's one of the best descriptions I have ever heard.
