    Let me suggest you think about a steel lined Big Foot Gun Belt. The 14oz version is what I use. I've seen several people remark that even though they were using a gun belt they still had pain but when they started using a Big Foot their pain went away. IMO they are reasonably priced for what you get and they do ship quickly. You should have a belt in about a week. They also run a $10 off sale every now and then.

    The gunbelt I use is called a Mechanics Belt. Been using the same one for about 6 years now and still in great shape. They have no buckle but instead they use a inside hook latch system at the buckle site. Not for everyone but for me it's a winner! I don't have a link for them but you can google and check it out.

It will most likely be on the side that you carry.
    No, I don't feel anything out of the norm. I know my chiropractor who I last saw a few weeks ago said my spine was in good alignment. He never mentioned any kind of lump.

    You're a lucky man, Dave. Some people don't do as well as you did following back surgery. And of course, some forms of chronic back pain such as arthritis are degenerative. For those folks, surgery may not be effective, PT can only slow down the process . . . not stop it, and some of the most popular drugs on the market used to treat back pain are potentially lethal.

    In the final analysis, anyone who acts as their own physician in diagnosing and treating their back pain has a fool for a patient.

    Most people in sports aren't the average age of those who post here, Dave. And professional athletes have access to physicians who regularly keep track of their physical conditions. So I will absolutely, positively, continue to stick with what I said:

    YMMV

    Many years ago I hurt my ankle on a cheater bar, digging out a tree stump. Immediate swelling and the nest day all swelling gone. But the ankle nagged me for some time. Went to orthopedic Dr. and x-ray showed I stretched a tendon around the inside of my ankle.

    My crack physician told me--It might get better, it might get worse, or it could stay the same. I said you spent 8 years in med school to figure that out? I've never been to med school and had those 3 options figured out before I got there. He then said, I can do surgery on Friday if i wanted it. I told him I'd get back with him on that. 2 years later the pain went away.

    Or not. I had a gall bladder attack before I moved to Washington State. My doctor sent me to a specialist who recommended that I have my gall bladder removed. I said I'd think it over. At least two years have passed since then, I still have my gall bladder, and I haven't had another attack since the first one.

    Doctor's don't know everything, of course. But they know more than I do. And refusing to obtain their advice doesn't make a whole lot of sense. What I do with their advice, however, is up to me.
