And there is always the possibility that the remaining discs between L1 and L2 will once again squirt out their jelly.
This is what my back now looks like.
If you blow up the picture you can see that the disc between L4 and L5 no longer exists, and that those vertebrae have fused together. The same thing is happening between L3 and L4, in fact the fusion between those vertebrae is almost complete. These fusions limit my ability to twist and turn and bend, to some extent - solid bone does none of those things. At some point all that bone growth will need to be removed if I want to be able to walk. Hopefully it will be years from now.
You took me back to my spinal injury days.ReplyDelete
Hi Dave! That's good your back is better. I think getting up early isn't as bad as having a bad back. Having back surgery is tough. I think you can handle opening up the store. Just take it easy for while. You can always ask for help if you have to lift things. Have a nice day!ReplyDelete

Thanks, it turns out lifting isn't as bad as bending at the hip so stretching is now mandatory.Delete
