My name is Stooty. I am a combat veteran of Afghanistan. While I was over there, I messed up my L-4 L-5 disc. I had to have an emergency laminechtomy and discechtomy back about 3 years ago.
The VA did all the work. They really didn't tell me anything about recovery. What not to do, what to do. So now I'm in A LOT of pain. I want to lose weight, but it hurts to exercise. I've gained about 40 or so pounds since surgery.
Can someone give me some advice on what to do? The VA sucks a big one! I heard walking is good. Is that true?
