    Sciatic Pain sucks!

    No bike, no glee, no snow I can see;
    Sciatic pain hurts me, so I eat codine.

    My muscles on fire, like molten lead;
    I swallow cyclobenzapr, as I lay here in bed.

    My plans asunder, my books are all read;
    My mind floats in wonder, why is my leg dead?

    I want to ride, but I can't sit up;
    I'm stuck where I lie, please bring me a cup!

    So as you read this, don't dare abide;
    all the things I miss, my adventures outside.

    Sciatica is bad stuff. It hit me while racing the divide back in 2005, and it was a total show stopper. Luckily it has never returned, but it was some of the most memorable suffering I have ever endured.

    Maad, can I cry in your beer?

    Been 2 months since my surgery, on a herniated disc,
    Without it no riding, so I took the risk.

    Yet my foot is still numb, though there's shards of sharp pain,
    I sit back on the couch, slowly going insane.

    No shredding, No bombing, No rippin' the hills,
    No Pass Mountain, No Somo, just a pile of pain pills.

    Alas I sit here and wonder, when I'll once again thrash,
    Mindlessly scouring the AZ forum, for another Cenobite crash...

    Sciatica Sux!!!!

    Hey Silver Slug, how I feel your pain;
    My beer goes Chug-a-lug, how I do feel lame.

    My mind is pacing, like a caged animal;
    How I'd rather be racing, with like-minded mammals.

    I think I'll suit up, and head out for a ride;
    Despite my pain, that fires in my thigh.

    I'll ride though the pain, for velcro soil;
    And grunt in the rain, how I long to toil.

    My meds sit alone, on my desk unmolested;
    As tires grip loam, the pain now contested.

    The pain is still there, still throbbing with fire;
    But something I bear, with my hearts desire.

    The ride may not last, for more than 2 hours;
    however the pain can fast, as I climb up to the towers.

    You make me feel so blessed to be 50 and riding.

    Keep us posted on your treatment. I've got a riding buddy that I did multiple Old Peublos Duo's with (quite frankly the toughest SOB I've ever rode with) who is completely on the bench with no prognosis for recovery due to degenerative/herniated disk issues. I'm praying right now that something works and fixes him up.

    Get better.

    I think I'll quit surfing MTBR and stretch...

    Now I sit here drunk, on codine and beer;
    I'm glad I did thunk, to look out and steer.

    My bike on the path, with hero trail status;
    I forgot how I lay, with the pain in my @ss

    The ride was great, the pain was muted;
    I know folks relate, when I say I computed.

    The stoke and excitement, that comes with a ride;
    I found enlightenment, on my own low tide.

    The tide has come in, the pain has returned;
    yet moving again, got rid of the burn.

    A slow ride here, another tomorrow;
    will make great beer, of my newfound sorrow.

    Goodnight my friends, as I now retire,
    I'd be lying on end, if I said I'd not tire.

    I drift off to sleep, just let me be;
    where I finally meet, the ruler of me.

    In dreams I do think, my knee is iron;
    yet I do as I make, a clown and a liar.

    Upon waking from nap, reality stands strong;
    Warm feels my ice pack, my therapy gone long.

    This day I do dream, I plan where I'll be;
    Yet I always know, I play the lottery.

    I dream like a bird, and fly many ways,
    My turd is rock hard, happy....holidays

    May Santa Claus bring you some better pain meds.

    I'd be sure to leave him some good cookies & milk if I were you!
