I've been a lurker
to this glorious website and forum for a long time and finally decided to register today. Throughout the time, I've gained alot of useful information from all of you wonderful people. I had surgery in August of this year (my very first surgery EVER
a Micro D. I thought my troubles were terminated and put away for good but sadly I believe my doom has resurfaced again. Almost a month ago, I was undressing and felt a slight shift in my spine followed by a slight tingle of pain in my left calf. IMMEDIATELY, I started to freak out and have a panic attack accompanied with heat hives
.. The pain has slowly crept back in my life and it sucks. I contacted my Neurosurgeon, he ordered me an MRI that was set for today. Before then, I was given a steroid dosepak and put on Hydrocodone 5's (SMH
) which did nothing but make me overly aggressive and constipated.
After my MRI, I asked the staff for a copy of the disc. I got it home and downloaded some free software to help me view it and I took a screenshot of it. I'm no doctor and really don't fully understand what I'm looking at but if I had to take a quick guess it appears that I've reherniated in my lower back again... If anyone is familiar enough with the image I've attached, I'm asking you kindly, if you could break down what it is and are my guesses correct. Looking forward to being among more people that are in similar situations as mine and abroad. Makes me feel as if I'm not alone or being a huge cry baby like some people have boldly said upon me explaining whats going on with my back. I always get the " OH MAN, THATS NOTHING MY LEG HURTS NOW AND BACK... BEEN THAT WAY FOR A DECADE BUT I'M WORKING"... Or "YOU'LL BE OK JUST DO MORE EXERCISING"
... Smh a bunch of mumbo jumbo basically.
Cheers to you all!!!
