    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...

    Yes, I've considered C2W, but wanted to see what else was available first- plus I'm impatient ;)

    New job involving train travel means I need a folder. 16 or 20 inch wheels, decent quality please. Ideally something like a dahon mu uno. No particular price in mind, but has to make financial sense over buying a similar model via C2W scheme

    What does anyone have?

    I'm Manchester based, but travel to London often.

    I need some work doing on my house in Levenshulme- Can anyone recommend the following please?

    1. Electrician for some new light fittings & switch relocations

    2. Builder with experience of restoring older house. I have an Edwardian house, gable end exterior wall looks to be a little damp, and may need attention. I'd like someone with period property experience to assess
