My guess is that your "about nearly stripped" truss rod is more like "stripped." Things that are "nearly stripped," are "stripped."
So, you might want to go ahead and try the truss rod. If it's stripped, your pretty screwed anyway, and that's why the neck is so bowed (because the truss rod isn't actually doing anything). If it turns out that it's NOT stripped, then you may be able to pull it back some. If so, don't try to do it all at once.
