Hi, everyone, I am new to this forum, my wife has wrote a couple of posts. I have tons of lower back pain after 2 back surgeries. My disks are healing and my hardware is in good shape according to my tests. But I have servers back pain going on 11months now due to a complication from the first surgery. I read Dr Sarno's book and Mr. Amir's books. My first day was good less pain when I woke up and I went to the gym to do light work out. It was the best day I have had in 1o months. Im using all the advice in both books. This morning, day 2 I woke up with a flare up and am having a little bit more pain than the day before but not as much as usual. Can anyone give some advice to what I should expect. I'm new to this and would love to hear some feed back. Thank you very much.
