Well fellow brothers and sisters. I have put this off since Sunday when I first started feeling a little pain in my tailbone area, thinking for the first 2-3 days maybe I just pulled or tore something. I have had several injuries over the years and kno my body pretty damn well. Also I have a hell of a pain tolerance and am the type of guy (maybe a little hard-headed) that will push through any injury within reason. It’s now going on 6 days and the pain has gotten worse each day. I went to the gym this morning against my wife’s wishes and now I realize I should have listened to her (always listen to the woman). Everyone I know of course thinks they are a Dr but my trainer who I actually trust more than my Dr seems to think it could actually be some fluid on my spine. I don’t kno though, as I’ve said I’ve had lots of injuries but this would be my first back injury. Anyhow if I had just pulled or torn something it would have started to ease up a little. This is getting worse by the day and my lower back is puffy and soft to the touch and extremely sore.
This, if in the worst case scenario could not have came at a worse time. As opportunities are opening up like never before as I have 2 or 3 solid options for my next fight in any of 2 or 3 weight classes I choose to fight in.
Not to mention heading into the last leg of my 16 week cycle (in the end of week 10 of now) what I had planned on going 16.
My regular family Dr is out of town until Monday morning and I have an appointment set up so we’ll see then, unless things just get to be too unbearable over the weekend
So to my fellow guys and gals here on UGM I just ask for y’alls prayers as I hope for the best possible outcome of this unfortunate situation. Thank all of you for your support. No matter what ends up the outcome or diagnosis I will bounce back just as I always do.
