About a week and a half ago I was getting in the shower and I slipped. I knocked the inside of my left calf against the tub and it was super bruised (still is, actually. I'd show you a pic but there's no way to do that here, that I know of). I also felt a pull in my lower back. It was instantly stiff and started having spasms. Then this past Friday It was cramping so bad! It hurt and there was nothing I could do to fix it. I called my doctor and he instantly called me in a 90 supply of muscle relaxers with 1 refill (I think he did this because at my 2nd post op I was having back spasms and cramps on and off).
Anyway, now, I am hurting into my left hip and to the upper part of the back of my thigh. When it started, I almost cried. I just have this overwhelming fear that I have re-herniated and I CANNOT go through all of that again. I just cannot do it. So, I am going to take it easy this week and next week I am going to rest as much as I can.
I don't know what you all believe in, but if you pray, please pray for me. If you believe in positive energy then send some my way. Whatever it is that you do, please do it once for me. You guys are my rocks and I could really use you all right now.
