At long last: the moment of truth

May 5, 2011 § 10 Comments

Last Friday, I went to get an MRI done on my lower back.

Today, we read the results, and it’s good news!

I have a disk protrusion at L5/S1, which is touching against the scar tissue near the sciatic nerve from my previous back surgery in 2008 (May 6th, as it happens). The protrusion is apparently not a fully-blown disk (hooray!), which means that it is a non-surgical issue. With medication, it should resolve itself and return to its place between the two vertebrae.

I’ll divulge more later, but I wanted to at least get the good news out there. 🙂 No surgery. Just more anti-inflammatory meds.

Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement! 🙂
