    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?

    I want a multi room set up for my new house. Speakers in the lounge , kitchen and possibly bedroom too.

    Want to be able to stream from phones, laptop etc, and connect hifi kit. I want wired speakers in the lounge. Not sure about the kitchen, bur something unobtrusive looking.

    I've been looking at both the Sonos connect , though I'd need another amp, and the Yamaha musicast rn602. Any other suggestions or thoughts?

    853 Donohue track frame. Built for Graham weigh cycles, down tube is aero profiled. It's a rocket, but I just don't ride track anymore. It's 56 or a 57, can measure up if you're interested

    Tbh, surgery was the best thing that happened . Not sure anything else would have fixed it in my case. I'm much stronger now than I was before popping my disc.

    As I said in my first post, I'm not saying you have an issue with a disc. But that the symptoms you've had could indicate one, and as such to be sure before you return to training.

    Whatever the issue is I hope you get it sorted soon, back pain really does suck. Disc based or not I'm sure you'll get back to full health

    Mine had totally prolapsed rather than being just bulging. I had surgery to have it removed and a cage and bone graft inserted in its place. Recovery was pretty fast and pretty easy.

    All better now, with no long term issues. Lifting weights with no problems, though it did take quite a while to build my back strength and mobility up.

    @jv get a scan if you can. If you've had nerve pain for 6 weeks (given you say you've not trained for that long), it could be a bulging or prolapsed disc. Was with me 2 years back.... Saw multiple doctors and physios , didn't get diagnosed until I had a scan. My spine itself didn't hurt, but had mega nerve pain in a single limb.

    Not saying that's what's happened to you , but worth exploring if it's not going away. And worth bearing in mind if you're thinking about training. A fully prolapsed lumbar disc is not a fun thing...
