I forgot I made this thread, I suppose I could update.
I am healing good, the wound is healing good, Its only about 2 inches long. I didnt even get a cool scar
I am having some worries though, when I am standing I get nerve pain in both hips and have felt it down the leg. The back pain has not really changed much, by the time I get done with a shower I am really sore. The do is going to try oral steroids next to try to get rid of any inflammation, he says it might be from how long the disc was bulged. There is still another herniated disc at my L5-S1 that he chose not to operate on. If the steroids dont work I might be getting a fusion at the L4-L5 and maybe the L5-S1. It really sucks, I cant bend, twist, or lift yet per his orders. I am getting pretty stir crazy.
Thanks all for the prayers and wishes, it means alot!!
