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/
