Went to Rapid to my Dr. yesterday and my back is healed. I am a good healer, that's that the dr. said. Usually it takes more than a year to grow the bone that I did...so I guess all that calcium works!! OK, I will still have some back pain, like everyone does and I will never be able to pick up excess weight nor smoke (which I never have) but all in all I am good to go ride bikes, horses, golf, garden etc. As long as work into it, everything is fine. YIPPEE!!
