Just posting an update to my herniated back situation.
At this point I’m feeling relatively good. Last week I had my first two physical therapy sessions and between being out of shape, and then having not exercised in 2 months, they were intense.
Right now, I’m doing some simple core work, and when I’m there, they do electrical stimulation on my back along with ultrasound.
We’re reigning in our eating out, and working as a team to eat healthier, so the progress can only be good.
Today we went for a walk in Steep Rock, it was my first outdoors hike since mid December.
As I laid on the floor tonight doing the exercises, I kept saying to myself, “you have to do this, you need to get rid of all this extra crap surrounding your body”. I’m trying hard to have hope that somehow my skin will go back, and I can look like a healthy person again. But somedays I get really fearful that I’ll do all the work and be saggy.
