    Has tore his groin, received a inguinal hernia and pinched a nerve in his shoulder while managing to herniate 3 discs. You don't even wanna see his testes right now...

    Apparently I've been walked around like this since Friday and didn't realize it was this bad. I ended up going to the ER in the middle of my work shift because my nuts wouldn't stop hurting for hours. Then I eventually doubled over in pain from it. Doctor couldn't believe I was still standing when I got to the Emergency Room.

    Now I've got a weeks worth of doctors visits coming up. Lucky me.:meh:

    Pushed a Mesa RoadReady on 3 busted casters through manhattan and staten island. There were a lot of stairs involved in this one. Whenever I moved it, I felt like I had to take a crap (and often did so) and then it hurt Saturday with what I thought was just being sore.

    I also had to do a lot of heavy lifting prior to work (windstorm blew down a tree at my friend's house) My job also requires heavy lifting as well.

    Dude, lift with your freggin' legs. There's a right way tolift stuff.
    As for carrying a heavy ass amp on busted casters through the city, that's just....euh...not to bright.

    I lift with my legs.

    Trying to push a cab that weighs 2/3s of your weight on crappy pavement on 3 casters with no ball bearings is a recipe for disaster though. My back was already injured from a car wreck a few years ago (hence the pinched nerves and herniated discs) and I shouldn't known better. Now I'm paying the price.

    Good luck with that, man. Do yourself a big fav and try to heal up proper (I know it's not convenient).

    I haven't left my house since I got home from the hospital. I don't plan on it either. I even got a free doctors note!

    I think JT is onto something here. After numerous work related injuries resulting from building big ass pyramids, megalithic structures, and pushing 2 ton heavy things through densely packed population centers the wheel was discovered to have many benefits.

    Bummer about your nards man.

    Man, hope you have some good pain meds. :atoz: Seriously, take care of that so it's not a long term issue.

    I think if my junk hurt real bad I might go into some serious denial & keep going- I love my junk like that.
    Sincerest sympathies, & I hope you quickly recover- at least to the point that we can ridicule & lambast you, although I'm not sure if that's really possible here. Wondering if man law says anything about it...
