Time to face reality Sens fans. Time spares nobody, not even Alfie.
I have dealt with many clients of mine who have has back surgeries and it is about 50/50 whether the surgery is successful. I do know for a fact, however, that if you are in top physical condition and are diligent in rehab, back surgery is very successful. I have clients who sometimes never work again because of a herniated disc, yet we had Gretzky play another 10 years, Roberts play like a beast after his, etc...a lot of my clients did not like Dr. Chow when they met him because he said that they will be fine after surgery and felt he treated them like Senaotrs. well, for good reason. he knows that if you do what is asked and don't have that extra piece of cake, excercise there is no reason why you cannot bounce back from back suregry.
