I am 3 weeks out of anterior disc rep. and disc fusion at L4-L5 and L5-S1. Doing great as far as getting around the house and walking around the block for therapy. Yesterday I decided that I was going to go to church which runs around 45 minutes, they have very comfortable pews. The church is about 6 minutes away from my house and when we got to the church I felt very anxious. I have had panic attacks before when my mother died 9 years ago, but I thought that was all behind me. Why now? I mean I didn't have a full blown attack but enough for my husband to ask if I was ok. It lasted about 15 minutes and then I went on like nothing ever happened.I am very fortunate to have a wonderful husband that does everything without complaining. He is wonderful!!!He even does the dishes and the laundry!! So whats going on? Could it be because I am spending a lot of time alone? My friends all work and my kids are in school and play sports. My husband asked me why Im anxious and wants to help but I have no answer for him. Enyone out there experiencing the same thing?
