My name is Steve. I’m a middle aged dude that has been living with pain for a long, long time. I didn’t realize how much pain I was in until I started making excuses for not doing simple things like mowing the lawn or walking to the corner to get a coffee. My injury crept up on me and coupled with other things led me to make a major decision in my life – to allow someone to cut into my body in an attempt to fix it. This is my journey from that point forward in time. To hopefully document my full recovery and return to a healthy middle aged dude.
