Surgery and recovery

MRI showed a herniated L3/L4 disc, bulging into mt L4 vertebra.  So, after 9+ weeks of trying everything else imaginable first, I finally had surgery a couple days ago.  I tried:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Oral steroids
  • Epidural Spinal Injection
  • Physical Therapy
  • Voodoo dolls (ok, but I would have if I could have found a practitioner)

Nothing provided more than temporary relief.

So, one microdiscectomy later, and I am feeling pretty good.  The intense leg pain is gone, replaced by incision pain, but I know that will get better.

I will continue with my rave reviews of microwave meals for the time being, although I can’t wait to get back to cooking for myself once  again/
