So I saw the surgeon today for my 7 1/2 week visit and I saw the x-ray results for myself...at 4 weeks it looked like threads going through it and today it was pure milky white. Now the problem, I'm in horrible pain. I was so uncomfortable in his office I was close to tears and he could see it. He said I was like a jumping bean the way I was moving around in the seat trying to get comfy. So his next thought is that a nerve is getting pinched or my L4 is giving out on me. He finally gave me a little stronger medicine and said I can't go back to work yet.
I'm worried about not going back to work at 12 weeks like expected but I honestly think it's for the best. I'm NOT ready. And I can't sit more then 15 minutes without tons of pain. So I left a message and email for my HR person and hopefully they get me the LTD paperwork soon..though my doctor didn't give me a date yet. I go back in 2 weeks and he hopes I'm doing better...if not it's MRI time. Funny thing about work is that when I left I turned all my projects that were open over to other people...there was an email from one of them saying she was turning it back over to me because I'd be back by the time the customer was ready to move forward....interesting how she knows that???? Bet she's going to be sad if I'm not.
Still no PT allowed or driving..he said "you need to lay low!!!"
So here's me....laying low!
