Actually pretty good man, Thanks. I have had to leg days with no pain and should be good to go. Right now i'm just starting light and slowly building up. Looking to start a bulk around july, should be full strength by then.

If the pain continues, please have an MRI/CORTISONE shot. Let's hope and pray this thing subsides on it's own! We are pulling for you...

Thanks Guys! I went to a sports doctor and he gave me some medrol. I am taking it over the next couple days and start physical therapy tomorrow. He is seeing me in three weeks and said I should be healed or making a lot of progress by then. I got tired of all this just resting and found someone who wants to get agressive with it.

Well guys worked out back and biceps today with no problems. The pt only wanted me to do some pulldown and cable rows. Both felt fine. I am able to basically work all upper body right now and continue the stretches he gave me. I will see him again on wednesday and add some more stretches and if all goes well the following week I am back to full body working out. If that fails then I am to see the sports doc again and it looks like a cortisone shot is the next step. Hopefully it will not come to that but I am skeptical since this has gone on this long. We will see wednesday when I see him.
On a good note I had to do bodyfat tests in my class(Hydrostatic weighing,skinfold,etc) and freaked out because my weight was down to 188. But my bodyfat has droped a pretty good bit and I have only lost a little over an inch on all my measurements, so I'm not to dissappionted since I have worked out in 3 months.

That's good news Matt! I hope it all continues to go well. But listen closely to your body so you don't mess it up more. Also, I have no doubt you will gain back your mass much quicker than you did the first time. Muscle memory should kick in when you get back at it.

Back was still giving me troubles so I got a cortisone shot at the doctor today. Its feeling better already. I have physical therapy on thursday and then he is going to reevaluate me. Also getting an MRI later in the week to rule out any damage to a nerve. The doctor thinks it will come out negative but wants to make sure since its gone on this long.

Well guys the MRI came back negative, so no real damage done to the back. The cortisone shot seems to be helping. I got cleared to start working out again. I am still doing the PT for the next two weeks. Hopefully that will go well and if so I will be able to workout everything. If I still have pain the doctor wants to try another cortisone shot. Ronnie was right on about the SI joint, that seems to be the problem. For some reason it just will not heal properly. Once I am fully back I will probably start posting in my log again. Numbers will not be good since I am starting off light and slowly building up.

Alright guys got cleared by the pt to start working everything out again. Gonna start out really light and just slowly build up for the next 6 weeks. I am hoping to be recovered enough to start a bulk by mid august. If everything keeps progressing like it is, then that will definetly happen. I appreciate all the help and support from everybody here.
