re gonna fork out an extra $60 a week for
exercise? Uh uh, no way. I was going to Curves for
free through my HMO (at least they do that for me), but there's no trainer there, and I kept hurting myself more than I was helping myself.
I asked for surgery: a procedure called a Micro-discectomy to remove the disc fragments (like bone spurs) moving around in there pinching new nerves everyday, and to clip away the extruded material from the ruptured disc.
