I hope you can find a good PM&R doc near you that specializes in rehab medicine because a good one of those will essentially work with you to exhaust every option before surgery and can help pave the way forward. I'd look one up or find recommendations for someone in your area. They're worth their weight in gold for this kind of thing.

On the plus side, there's decent literature to support that a herniated disc in the lower back can resolve within the year of symptoms, but I'm not sure if that study (SPORT Trial) accounts for trauma. If you herniated 5 discs in your lower back (i.e. lumbar spine) that means you herniated EVERY disc in your lumbar spine (except for maybe one depending on how they're counting).

My rec as someone that went through agony for years, though yours seems way ******* worse, is to find someone that can work with you for now without the knives. I really hope you heal fast man that ******* blows. Hopefully the other drivers insurance is still covering all the treatment.

Also, skiing 21 days after back surgery isn't typical lol.
The accident that caused most of the damage was when I was 21 (I'm 26 now). It just got worse in my neck after the most recent accident. And you are right, the doc said it was all of my lower back. You definitely know what you are talking about lol

But yea, I'm looking into options now, and I can always rebuy a miata in the future, but right now it's not being driven enough to justify keeping it. I would rather spend the money on stuff I can do right now.

Aiight I took her out for a spin today, it's still overheating but only when the AC is on. I'm sure it's just an airflow issue, but it's going to be the next guys problem because I don't have the energy to fix it. I already posted it for sale on CL and LetGo.

crazy thought re: AC causing it to overheat.

The AC fan is wired correctly yeah?
ie: the polarity hasnt been swapped, which would make it spin backwards and try to push air forwards rather than draw air through the rad?

I wish it were that easy. But nah that was one of the first things I checked and it's wired correctly.

It's most likely because the SC has an intercooler stuffed in the grill now blocking air flow. I have a very similar setup and I switched to the FM stage 1 airflow kit with Spal fans.

Good luck with the sale.
