All that being said... If you truly give your back a break(no pun intended) it will come around in approx 8-10 weeks
Just my opinion..... >>>> Ride on.........

Did you have any residual from your injuries (any of the four)? What type of laminectomy did they do for the removal of the bulged disc? My biggest problems are with a bulge impinging on the column and nerves to my rt leg and my adductor muscles of my bladder. The docs won't cut because they fear my loosing the other leg and possibly worse (couldn't be too much, I saw people in 'chairs at Shands in Gainesville, made me feel lucky about my situation, at least I get around) B.T.W. I thought you Army avaitors were the kings of autorotation. We had two Navy TH-57 I.P.'s from Whiting Field badly injured in a tail rotor failure at Navarre Beach a couple of weeks ago. Impact broke their backs, internal injuries and assorted other problems. Crash drove the turbine and rotor head down into the lower fuselage. They kept the wreckage in the hangar bay of the maint. hangar we are rehabbing fot the new T-6A, JPATS. Sounds like you recovered well. Maybe we can get together and ride sometimes. P.M. me if you get around N.W. Florida or are nearby.( if you don't mind a former Marine)
