Re: Weight...
Sep 19, 2003
First of all, I'm sorry to hear about all of this!! This is a touchy subject with me because I use to be quite heavy myself. I didn't start having back problems until I lost about 60 lbs (not sure how much that is in KGs, sorry!) I've managed to lose another 20 lbs, but I'm still overweight. I'm sure it is making my back worse, but I don't understand how I didn't have any pain when I was 80lbs heavier!

Anyway, is there a possibility of you finding another dr? It is hard enough to lose 40lbs when you are not in pain and you can exercise and lift weights, etc. I know with my body I can't lose weight unless I exercise and I mean really exercise, it doesn't matter what I eat. I really feel for you in a situation like this. I hope either you can find another dr or some kind of an answer.
