[QUOTE=jeff_in_rc;18144469]Thanks for the replies guys, I appreciate it. I was even told DO NOT do situps or crunches for the very same reason, oh well I gotta do what I gotta do to stay healthy don't I.

Hey wingam00, those blinkers working out for you?

A friend rode one and said they are alot of fun and a hell alot better than the traditional trikes.

I love my Spyder, but they are sooo NOT hernia friendly. You have to do all the leaning yourself, like an ATV or snowmobile, which involves constant weight-shifting into turns and such. Great fun, but also a heckuva core workout.

Then again, maybe just splurge and get a T-Rex

Thumb Thanks everyone

Thanks for the well wishes everyone, this is something I have been thinking about for years now and finally made the decision, it was hard but I feel that it will be the best for me.

We have already found a Jeep Wrangler and when the tax $$ comes in it will be ours! I can't wait to start a new chapter in our off-road lives, I can't quit enjoying the desert here after all, way too much to see and do here.

BTW I went to see my doctor yesterday but he wasn't there due to an emergencey surgery so I will see him next week, oh well gotta wait some more to get the details but that is how it goes huh.

I will still poke around the site and offer any advice that I can as I have learned a lot about my old DRZ. Have a good one!

Talking Hiya everyone!

Just a quick note to say hi to you all and to say I am doing MUCH better since I last wrote. It turns out I have strained some musles but did NOT get another hernia! Woo Hoo!!

Anyway I am having the time of my life with my Jeep, I have joined a local 4X4 club and gone on some great runs. Man this thing is a blast and I am getting my 2 dogs used to going out with me. Now if I can only get my wife to go out with me, she is a huge chicken when it comes to off-roading.

Take care and keep it on 2 wheels!

Wow

I couldn't picture hanging up my helmet, but I must admit that my body's taken a severe beating over the years and I feel it every day. As long as you're able to get your jollys somehow that's all that matters.

My advise,, don't give up. There are some talented doctors out there. You just have to do some research and find one that knows how to help you. Good luck.

This.
