    I agree with the swimming part. I had a friend that was in a severe car accident, thy had to rebuild(or fuse) 3 of his discs together... he was on morphine for about 4 months. He said that swimming, even floating around in a pool helped, it kept him from going crazy staring at the ceiling, and kept his spirits up, made him feel like he was gaining some headway. Took him 9 months to get out of the hospital and another year after that to walk with a cane. He's able to walk now, but he said he would have went crazy if it wouldn't have been for the swimming. Doctors didn't think he would make it through the first month, let alone walk with a cane and be able to pick up his 2 year old.

    Have you thought about doing some stick work from sitting in a chair? I know it's not ideal, but with a light pair of sticks and a comfortable chair, you should be able to at least go slowly through some forms and drills with very light level of speed and force, and not put to much strain on your back. or even do it while lying down on the floor.

    I would also ask for another opinion... there is always another way.

    Just with anything you do remember to be patient and do things slowly, it takes time to recover from back injuries.

    If your body is in too much pain do research into the arts...

    I was down for 4 months about 8 years ago from a work related frost bite injury (all toes and fingers had 1 to 2nd degree frost bite damage, think pain of 2nd degree burn), it hurt to walk, every time I breathed I could feel my toes and fingers throb for the first week. After that I started my recovery. Bought, borrowed, books on martial arts, almost anything I could get my hands on, and read them, inbetween hunting for a better job, accident happened more do to the boss' lack of safety/common sense.

    Point is training is more than just working on the techniques; do some research, work on it if your body allows you (slowly), and keep moving forward 1 baby step at a time.:)

    Painfull to the point of almost blacking out the first few days:oops:! Something as simple as making lunch turned into a painful experience. It healed up pretty good, didn't loose any fingers or toes, acts up every once in a while, my grip on tools will just randomly loosen if I am not using them, but it's gotten vary rare. Acts up a bit when it gets -35C or lower, but that's to be expected, and normal from what the doctor told me.

    I am assuming it is your lower back that is the issue. Confirm with your doctor, but I would suggest strengthening your abs to take some of the pressure off your back. Even pelvic thrusts are good, ad should be easy to do. If you are able to, do some light and slow good morning exercises using only a bo, hockey or broom stick. Also - work on light mobility work, and stretching your hamstrings.
