Just a quick little note for now.
I've survived the Discogram and the Ankle surgery. But it's been a difficult week to come back from. I don't handle pain medication well at all.
The discogram showed that yes, there are 2 herniated discs and one is ruptured as well. My left leg pain is definitely coming from the rupture.
The ankle surgery has been the worst one I've gone through so far. There is a 3" incision on the outside of my right ankle and everytime my foot is not elevated the whole foot turns a dark purple. It's been tough. I have a boot to use to walk, but so far, I've not been able to take even one step on it.
I HAVE hope though! I am opening the house up next weekend to anyone who wants to drop by and scrap! Starting Thursday - it's open house at my house :) Come on over!
