A few weeks ago, I began having such excruciating back pain that the only way I could find relief was by lying flat on the floor. I guess years of hauling heavy gear (PAs, amplifiers, speakers...) came for payday...
Diagnosis was bulged disc on L5 that presses S1 (sciatic nerve) on right side.
Medication and other non-invasive treatments have not brought relief, and the doctors recommended back surgery, followed by two months of physical therapy as the only option.
I’m sure I don’t have to remind you that the job of a professional musician does not come with sick pay or health insurance. And so, I am facing a mountain of healthcare bills at a time when I'm unable to work.
If you think I have made a positive impact on your life through my art or friendship, I hope you will join in supporting by contributing to my GoFundMe account in whatever way you can.
