Say what Doctor?
Some persistant neck pain finally drove me crazy enough to go see a Doctor a month ago. After x-rays and then an MRI and a few appts the Doctor informed me that I have a problem in my cervical vertabrae (c3 and c4). It is not something that is all of the sudden going to paralyze me or anything like that but I will need a delicate surgery to correct the problem.
After being told it is not that emergent I said good, can it wait untill after my MTB trip to AZ in Sept? Then the bomb came, "you won't be riding a mountain bike anymore". I feel fine on the bike but have not been on real rough terrain since Jan so that may be a factor. This is a tough pill to swallow so there is a lot of thought going on before my next appt this coming week to do scheduling. Time will tell.
