I have my microdiscectomy tomorrow and have been a basket case the past two weeks. I'm starting to accept it, but of course my nerves are shot. So many people are telling me it's not a huge deal and recovery is quick as long as I walk, walk, walk. I'm trying to explain to my daughter (who's 3) that Mommy is going to a special doctor and even though I may not be able to bend or sit down with her on the floor, soon I'll be able to play tag with her all the time. Hopefully her and my husband don't kill each other while I'm recovering (she got his stubborn side, so it's always a class of the Kinder-titans!) My pre-op is at 9:30, and my surgery is scheduled at 11:10. I don't know what I'll have with me in my room, if I'll have my phone or what, so I will try to update if and when I can.
