Here's a little math problem for you.
12 phone calls to my primary care physician to get an orthopedic referral
1 orthopedist that "doesn't think I really need a MRI"
1 very uncomfortable MRI
back pain trailing down my left leg, with numbness
What does that equal?
Well apparently it equals "emergency" lumbar back surgery. So, it may be quiet here for a bit while I recover. (I'm currently 5 days post operation already.)
But I promise I will be back. (Oh gosh, really bad unintentional pun.)
