  •  smoking is hell on your back, my neurosurgeon (9+ / 0-)

    wont even operate until I have 90 days clean because it inhibits the healing process so much.....

    Then again I am not allowing surgery on my T-spine anyway
    Lumbar was not too bad and from what I hear neither is cervical but the Thoracic spine is a whole different situation....

    Please make sure via scan that you dont have a real impingement problem that yoga will make worse....It would be a shame to really screw yourself up trying to do good.....

    On my last scan, a dye was introduced to the spinal canal then allowed to flow up to ck available space....miracles of modern medicine, first they tilt the table so you are head down then a couple of the assistants and the surgeon shake you real good so the die flows faster...I could barely stop laughing....they are watching this dye in real time on a high def monitor yet the high tech way to make the die migrate is to get a few people to shake you vigorously...heh...

    as for quitting I am mostly migrated to a pipe which the Doc says is not as bad but havent been able to actually quit yet...maybe soon I hope...
