The good thing with crossfit is I am still able to train my core. Doing a lot of back exten., ab work, lunges, squats etc. The Dr. said I was looking at up to a 6 month recovery till I get the 100% nod to do everything prior to surgey. Let me know how you make out and I will do the same. Was very discouraged at first but i know i will have one strong core by the time this is done. Hope everything works out and try to stay positive.

Had surgery on Friday. A few days of massive discomfort, going crazy sitting around the house, and I'm starting pt today. I had to do this. Non-operative recovery was not an option. The loss of strength and flexion was too much to sacrafice. It'll be 4 to 6 months, but I'll be back at it almost 100%.
