    No, but I had kyphoplasties and laminectomies at both T12 and L1 (and a bunch of other things, too). L1 burst upon impact, so it has been completely reconstructed. Five breaks in total. I am EXTREMELY lucky and have defied all medical odds. Sounds like your gentleman friend is and has, too.

      Thank you, iniQuity! I try really hard and feel accomplished when people notice.


      Brains, haven't gone there yet, I can't find a close-enough farmer and this is NJ, people only eat what others find acceptable, it's VERY hard to find random shit, or maybe I'm not looking in the right places.
      It actually took me awhile to find a good source. Just keep calling or emailing local butchers asking about it and maybe you'll get lucky.


      Do you still smoke? I think I recall you being one of the primal tokers, I had to give it up for a number of reasons but mostly because I'd eat just about everything in sight with complete disregard for health.
      Yup! On occasion. Maybe a few times a month. I've actually never had problems with getting munchies. Sure, food tastes incredible, but I still have enough wit about me to deny my body crap.


      I'm currently eating nutella, you're jealous.

I'm just preparing you mentally for this, because me and my friends foolishly thought I'd just get up out of bed and be running. But at least we are both on our way!!

          Reading your post below, your's might have been a bit more serious than my incident. Also, your injury was a bit lower than mine, more affecting your bending ability than mine where the damage was most concentrated at T8 and T9. My doctor expects a very quick recovery after the removal and my rods will have only been in for six months. It was supposed to be a year, but a bacterial infection changed that one up nice and quick. :P

          Best of luck on your continued healing and thanks so much for your advice and concerns. It really is much appreciated!

              Yes, yes, please do! I love critiques of my recipes, and there aren't a ton of peeps who have access to brains. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

                Yes, you are lucky because your break was up in the midthoracic vertebrae, which aren't required to move too much, in the scheme of things. There was a guy who was also rehabbing with me who had his break up at the T8-T9 area and actually walked out of the hospital. My rods went all the way down to L4 (ack!), and you're definitely in lumbar lordosis (curve of spine) territory there, so my walking is totally jacked up. I didn't want to say anything earlier because I didn't want to scare you, but it doesn't seem the case for you at all, so I'll tell you that a lot of what I'm dealing with now was actually caused by the rods themselves (because they extended down so low and caused a great deal of torque on my sacrum). Also, my rods were in for two years. Makes a big difference. When are yours coming out?

                BTW, my fall was also centered around an animal. World's most expensive cat.

                    Yeah, and I know why; I had to contact SO many butchers before I found one who would was even open to asking the farmers he works with. Totally worth it, though.

                      Hopefully that will be me in this case!

                      Ouch! I'm sorry to hear that, TL. Are you still doing PT/rehab work? How's it all going?

                      I'll tell you that a lot of what I'm dealing with now was actually caused by the rods themselves (because they extended down so low and caused a great deal of torque on my sacrum). Also, my rods were in for two years. Makes a big difference. When are yours coming out?
                      Yeah, that's exactly why I saw this bacterial infection as both a blessing and a curse. The upside is that I get my rods out in half the time (May 9th!). The downside is that I'm on daily antibiotics for 4 months straight. :S

                      Sauerkraut, kimchi, and probiotics for this guy!

                      BTW, my fall was also centered around an animal. World's most expensive cat.
                      Let me guess: Your (or a friend's) cat climbed a tree...at which point it was abducted by a bunch of extra-terrestrial frat-brothers who vaguely resembled Gary Coleman. This led your true and noble spirit on the grandest of adventures across the galaxy to rescue the poor, confused kitty. Upon arrival to the home world of those dastardly, drunken aliens, you find that little Ms. Maggie Sue is being exploited in genetic splicing experiments in an attempt to bestow the inhabitants of that planet the skills of "acting cool" and "generally not giving a shit". You managed to break into the lab and free the unwilling test-subject, just barely escaping death as you jettisoned yourself, cat in hands, from that hell. Although, in the fiery explosions that are guaranteed in any epic escape scene, you were thrown hundreds of feet into the air. Being so selfless, you sacrificed your own back to the fall in order to ensure your feline friend remained unscathed.

                      Wow, TL...I hope to one day be as great as you. Consider yourself idolized.

                          On Tuesdays I'm on campus, working or in classes, from 8AM-9PM straight with no breaks. That means no exercise today except for my walks in-between work and classes. Every once in awhile I'll get the motivation to come in for a light workout or walk in the gym before the start of my day, but usually 13 hours (with a 45 minute drive to and from campus) is more than enough to deal with. :P

                            You have redeemed yourself with Tool. A most fantastic album, now, allow me to zone the fff out. Did you ever listen to the re-ordered version after this whole Fibonacci thing? I didn't read much into it, the music rocks, don't care if they were trying to get all mathematical on people.
                            I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                              Nah; there's a lot of speculation involving Tool's album order and various song pairings. Most of it is bunk, which Maynard has even confirmed himself. He loves laughing at all of the time his fans spend on trying to "figure out" something that's not even there.

                                YES. YES IT IS... the other benefits, aside from the bag of rice (of course), are sunny weather, random coastal action and me... because i'm awesome... and i have coconut flavored candy... LOL
