Newbie 3 days out of surgery
Hi everyone, I wanted to introduce myself. I'm 3 days out of microdisectomy and am adjusting to life with the elevated potty and not being able to bend. I'm 41 (as of yesterday--got surgery as a birthday present) and single, currently staying with my parents till I am on my feet. I look forward to getting to know you all. The incident leading up to the surgery happened a month ago out of the blue. Attorney one day, flat on my back the next. Couldn't even sit without intense pain. It was my L1 pressing on my sciatic nerve. A month later (last Friday) I had the surgery. Doing better now, but wondering how to get my life back to normal. This forum has helped a lot.
