Hopefully back again soon

I fell back in January and started having severe leg pain. It had gotten to the point where I am in a wheelchair, and for a while I thought it was an injury to my leg. It turns out that apparently when I fell I broke a piece in my L5 vertebrae and now it's shifted pretty bad and it is pinching my nerves which is causing my leg pain.

I'm glad they finally found it, and after talking with the surgeon on different possible treatments (basically a steriod injection or surgery) I've decided to have the surgery. They will put some screws, rods and a bone graft in my lower back and that should stab

Latest update

Well just had my follow up with the oncologist about my prostate surgery. There's good news and bad news. The good news is that the prostate cancer appears to be all gone. The bad news is I misunderstood about the cancer that had spread to my bladder, the PSA test wouldn't show it's status.

Since I'm so young the doctor suggested that they do an analysis of the piece that was removed with my prostate and determine how aggressive it is. That will then help us d
