Re: Club40+

I just wanted to let you all know I'm still alive. Lots of life changes. Finally had an MRI of my neck and back. I have a herniated disc that's bulging into my spinal cord and pinching a nerve at the base of my neck. That's is why I have lost alot of the mobility in my and use of my left arm. On the MRI it also showed that I have lesions on my spine. They recommended that I see an oncologist and be tested for cancer. Went in for nuclear bone scan.... Negative thankfully. But they still don't know what they are. More testing is required.

I'm starting a new job in the communications industry as a manager on Nov 18th. I'm excited for the new opportunity. This means good things to come for myself and the family. This new opportunity is gonna make life easier on me.

I'm still working on the xB as time permits between work and life. We went to the Drop Em Wear show in Winston-Salem, NC on October 19th. I actually drive the xb for a change! It was the furthest I've ever driven my xb. Almost 4hrs each way. I Caravaned with a few other members of my club. I took these videos as we sat at the gas Station at 3am getting ready to leave SC.

I''m fortunate enough to have always surrounded myself with good people. I am very thankful for my car club Freaks of Nature. Thank you to all my club xb family for your love and support.

Re: Club40+

I'm looking forward to Turkey Day.... had a CAT scan this morning of my thoracic spine and also a bone density scan. they're still trying to figure out what's going on with the lesions in my spine. but cancer has been ruled out.

Re: Club40+

Sorry to hear about the herniated disc. Mine - between L5 & S1 in 2001 - has been 99.5% resolved for many years. The great news is that, as the leaky fluid dries out over time, nerve pressure decreases. The challenging news is that strengthening the surrounding muscles takes regular work. And it's worth it. Walking a lot helps keep the discs refreshing themselves as well.

Being well over 40 is lots of work! Good luck with handling those lesions, and I hope the mobility returns sooner than later.
