I tried to keep a patient from falling on July 9th 2012 at 7am by 730am I was in the wosrst pain of my life. I had surgery for a bulging disc L5 on Aug.31st. A few weeks post-op I went numb from my waist down on my left side. My disc bulged again. On Oct. 16th I had surgery again. A few weeks after I went numb again. My dr did another MRI and said everything looked good healling fine just take some time. Now I am in a great deal of pain on my back and the numbness is worse. I am 34 years old with a life teenagers and a wonderful husband. I am not ready to be stuck at home not able to get out nd enjoy my family. Any advice would be very welcomed. I just want to get better.
