I'm laying here, 10 days after a L4/5 microdiscectomy... and the pain in my left leg, and back, is as bad, if not worse, than ever. Trying to have hope, since its only been 10 days. Thank GOODNESS NCAA Basketball has been on all week... loving basketball, this has given me the opportunity to watch the entire tournament!
I'm trying hard not to be too sorry for myself, but at 36 years old, with a 2 year old son... its SO HARD not being able to walk well, not able to lift him, or do work, or help around the house. This feeling of uselessness combined with pain has reduced me to tears many times over the last 6 months. I was so hoping surgery would make the leg pain go away!
Ok, enough about me... how is everyone else doing? I'm pretty excited to find this forum, a place I can find people to talk to who can really relate to my experience. I am so eager to learn from you all.
