I confess...I can't really write much yet but wanted to note I was discharged yesterday (late afternoon Thurs). The doc said my disc was very much trashed which makes it clearer that it was the pain source and very likely the surgery will help. I can get around the house without my walker but need it is I leave. Getting in and out of bed is tough and requires a log-roll technique b/c I'm not allowed to arch. The main rules are summed as no BLT....bending, lifting, and twisting. Seriously, you have no clue how often you do those things. The brace isn't fun and I need to wear it if I'm out of bed for more than 10-20min, but it does help remind me of the rules.
