I went to the orthepedic surgeon today. He took a look at my x-rays and it was not good news. I have a large pertruding disc in my lower back that is pressing on the nerves. Normal to average disc problems are a slipped disc, herinated disc or ruptured disc. My problem is a large disc that is protruding into the nerve.
So what is the end result? SURGERY.
I called a family meeting tonight. Being a single mother I need to talk to my children about taking care of the home while I am in the hospital. My oldest son needs to be in charge and everyone has to do their part. I am really sad right now because I think I am more affraid than anything. I have NEVER had surgery before so I dont know what to expect. I am young and I am sure that I will make it through the procedure. I just worry about my children and my home while I am gone.

My aunt had to have two of her disks fused... she now has a permahandicap tag.
I'm sure everything will be fine during/afterwards. » ikimashokie

eek, that sounds painful. I know I need surgery, but its not a big enough problem to need immediately. I wish you luck with the surgery. » LostSoul13

Hope everything will be alright. I'm sure your children will know what to do when you're not at home and keep you from worrying. » Nuttz

A little bit of optimism when you're under the knife goes a long way. Now, I won't tell you not to worry about your kids because that's just like saying "DON'T BREATHE!"--very counterintuitive--but try not to let it get the best of you. I'm sure they'll pull through just for you.
I'll be keeping you in my thoughts! » ranor

hey there! I'm so sorry to hear about your back! At least now they know what it is and they have a plan for fixing it, unlike poor lazypuppy! It always makes me feel a little better when they know what's wrong and they have a plan of action. Still scary though!! But don't worry, we're your little support group, and if I still lived in California, I would give your kids my number so they could call me if they needed to, but since I don't, I'll just say that I'll have you in my prayers and you'll be just fine!! :D » Zanzibar

GOOD LUCK UNDER THE KNIFE, KKAMA-SAMA! You'll be in my prayers, and I hope everything goes well. If you want, I can perform the surgery for you. I just found a real cool butcher knife and I'm sure that with alittle practice, I can be as good as Dr. Burke! » Dilated
