Hey Perry...it's all over in the "Nuts" thread in cycling health.
But as it stands at the moment I am getting some cortisone injections into the lumbar area of my spine on Monday 23rd August.If that doesn't work I will push for the same but higher up in conjunction with Maignes Syndrome (that is what my symptoms come closest to).
So hopefully by mid late next week I will feel some improvement if the Rhumeotologist is right...at the moment I have put on 10kgs in 3 months (BAD) and really can't do any exercise at all.
Cheers for thinking of me!.

I've only put on 4kg over winter, mainly due to illness. But I've still been riding occasionally, so I have no excuse. :oops:

My fingers are crossed for you, TLL.
I ride, therefore I am.

It takes time toolonglegs, I know I have had the same. Look after yourself and just walk when you can. This is the worst pain, as I said before I didn’t have the same disc as you but got the pain in my periformes and down the leg, you have it in your nuts. Maybe the mrs can rub them gently in the evening, it will help

It doesn't :lol:

I am not too bothered by the groin pain anymore...it is just referred pain from somewhere else...it is the pains in the lower back and thighs that bugs me the most.

You mean the rub doesnt help or the pain is not as bad, most guys will have the rub anyway, pain or no pain

Is that good or bad for you?

Surely you could find a better place to come back to, than Siteney. :roll:

We had 5 options...
1. Stay...I haven't really found much work...and the well paid contract of my better half is finishing...unless we take option 2.
2. Move to Argentina and permanent contract...it might be the safest south american country but it is still south america and we have small children.
3. Go to London...great for my work and I love it...but not so great for the kids.
4. Go to NZ...great lifestyle...not so much work...but may happen in the future.
5. All expenses paid relocation to Sydney...who knows how that will work out.

I think 5 is the best option for now.

Yup, once you're relocated to Sydney it becomes much less hassle to move to Melbourne. :-)
