    My prolapsed disc was cervical. so I was advised by my surgeon that risk was low. Tbh, for me it was a risk worth taking..... Think the risks may be different if it's a lumbar disc..... I'd imagine recovery to be more difficult too .

    See what your consultant says once you finally get an MRI, I'm sure they'll articulate any risks if they propose surgery

    Ah bugger. If the MRI shows a prolapsed / ruptured disc and surgery is possible, go for it. Best thing I ever did after 6 months of pain.... almost instant relief.

    Just a shame the NHS treatment pathways take so long until they refer you for an MRI.

    I got back to training after surgery. Took a long time to build my back up, I was very careful not to go too fast.... But back to lifting heavy now

    Was thinking of an rn602, with 2 sets of wired speakers. I'm renovating a house, so running wires about is not an issue. May get so e of the wireless Yamaha speakers for the bedroom though ...

    Thanks, sounds like a good choice. Need to find some discreet speakers for the kitchen. I'm not quite sold on ceiling speakers.....

    Thanks, the flexibility with speakers with the Yamaha kit is good. Think when it comes to sound quality it'll offer the best bang for buck. We had a Sonos in my old office. Lovely to use, sound quality was meh.

    Have you used the musicast app much, and if so is it any good?
