    Don't rush back on my account. From my own experience of back problems, unless the problem is fully healed, the pain quickly returns. Getting back to full health is more important right now. I'm shure those expecting knives form you won't be bothered by waiting an extra couple of weeks for their special delivery's to arrive.

    Thanks Guys for the well wishes, thats made me feel much more cheerful.
    Pierre yep not good to be dosed out all the time. I had a lower discoptomy a few years ago too. Had to wait about 4 months before the operation so was on tramodol daily, I had a few sleepless nights when I stopped taking them after the op.
    It's unlikely this is a disc job though, thankfully, just a case of recovering and taking measures to prevent it in the future.

    As already mentioned good body mechanics helps.*I used to get back and neck problems. Took my big thick wallet out of my back pocket thinned it out and put it in my front pocket. That tilt really messed with my back. *On rare occasion if I get back or neck pain I do a yoga move called the cobra then I am good again for months. Also, physical therapists can really help showing you stretches. My favorite neck one is arm out straight,palm of hand on wall,lean head towards wall, then lean head away from wall works well. On rare ocassion I take ibuprofen. I don't like the fog either and so I take 800mg of ibuprofen three times a day for ten days. At that level it is an anti inflammatory. Every grocery and drug store has the 200mg tabs just take 4 tabs to hit the 800mg. Always take with food. I hope that this will be of use to people.

    Lol, I might be too sedated to type. Maybe I will have some shamanic visions of the perfect kitchen cutter

    Being 5'11" and working in kitchens I find that my lower back is always in a kink just because of the low counters. I have taken to finding anyway of making my cutting board higher up closer to my chest, than my waist. Changing heights has saved me many of painful nights.

    Hope you get well soon, and you see this as a small step to better health.

    +1, come to think of it. I also put my grinder on a taller table a few months ago. MUCH BETTER.

    Shamanic visions...
