Was diagnosed by MRI with a herniated disk in my l5 affecting on my S2 nerve.
just had a epidural about 3 hours ago.. still not getting much relief from it, and it was quite painful to receive.
anywho, I injured myself exercising, I think it was bad form doing squats about 12 weeks ago, and re-injured myself 2.5 weeks ago during my muay thai (thai kick boxing) workout..
My doctor is telling me it takes 4-6 months for the disk to totally heal itself and I was advised to lay of the muay thai for awhile..
he said I can return to light exercise a week after I am pain free..
I am just wondering what is considered light exercise?
I am also wondering what I can do that will be as light on my back as possible but still allow me to keep up my exercising..
