Its been an up and down couple days from my last post. These are difficult times with the COVID-19 and what timing for my microdiscectomy even though we are on a stay at home ordered yesterday. I get out each day to walk and exercise but boy trying to walk through the pain can be hard. But having chronic pain that’s what you are supposed to do. Also to help recovery from the upcoming surgery, if we get there.

I had a wonderful couple of days with a lot less pain. Well, exactly what the doctor said The disc that was bulging and trapping the nerve has receded therefore unpinning the nerve that was trapped at L3, L4. Yes, remember this is where I had surgery with spinal fusion with rods and cages. Well, horrible I had to wait for a surgery that never happened, but great that I have that less pain. Now a little further up I have still no cartilage between, L1 and L2 with that I feel now when I twist I pinged another nerve at that joint or feels like it anyway.

Gosh it has been hard and you just want everything to go back to normal, but it doesn’t, and it brings you down. This is why no matter what’s happening in your every day you have to find the fun, ” but I can’t !’ you say ….. think of something that makes you laugh.
