I just got back from the doctor, and it was not fun. After asking the usual questions he had me lean forward, (I was in a wheelchair) he touched my back and I screamed. He said "that is touchy isn't it." He asked me if I could walk and I said yes. I slowly got up and took two steps and fell to the floor.
The Doctor grabed me and I had to tell him to turn me loose. I have found that when someone tries to help me when I fall, it onlys causes more pain becasue they are pulling on me in a twist. It took me awhile to get up and get back to the wheelchair.
The doc suggested I get another MRI to see what's going on. I told him it will show two herniated disk just like before and that there is nothing that can be done for it. He agreed, but said it would be good to make sure. So...I wait until I can get an appointment with a neurosurgeon and go from there. My concern is that this is getting more frequent and that there will come a time when I won't be able to walk. Time will tell.
I will one way or another get my garden out this year, even if I have to crawl in the dirt to do it. Of course the wife won't like washing dirt/muddy jeans.
