If you are interested look up "The Egoscue Method" or go to egoscue.com and check it out. It has saved some people from the surgery - Boodad12  77.1 #4008 8:42PM
Thanks boodad, I'll check it out.  - Becky.Boops  64.0 #4316 8:44PM
Oh I am so sorry. I have been in a similar situation with herniated discs, spinal stenosis and possible career changes (although I know of many nurses with history of disc issues and are still working). I pray your Dr gives you the maximum state disability allowed (I got a year and it really helped). Getting a good physical therapist is REALLY important too! If you need a rec for an awesome one in the SD/La Jolla area, let me know. Mine was awesome and has kept my back pain at a wee minimal and allowed me to be a functioning mommy and hopefully a nurse again soon. Give it time to heal and don't rush into surgery as it doesn't always solve the problem. - Polkadobo  384.7 #583 8:45PM
Ohmigosh! I know how you feel about your job Becky. I would feel just as upset! You've helped me out too, ya know. Not just animals. I promise when I become a vet tech (I start school in March!) to do twice the job in your honor.  Please feel better! - Marieeezy  592.5 #344 8:46PM
Ouch! Hope ur back feels better soon! - MrsJackSparrow  56.6 #4523 8:48PM
Ouch! Hope ur back feels better soon! - MrsJackSparrow  56.6 #4523 8:48PM
What about accupuncture Becky? Maybe that could help you a little? - MimiMouse  1049.0 #173 8:50PM
Thanks polkadobo, i appreciate the advice, supposed to start physical therapy and what not... Tomorrow I'm going over the game plan with my dr... I appreciate all of your guys' input. I can always count on u! And marieezy, that just brought tears to my eyes!! Your so sweet! And I'm so happy for you starting school in march! Let me know if u need any help!!! - Becky.Boops  64.0 #4316 8:50PM
@Mimi I'll ask my dr tomorrow... Hoping to get a lot more answers when he and I sit down and discuss all of my options and what not.. - Becky.Boops  64.0 #4316 8:53PM
My dad had fusion surgery to repair herniated and ruptured discs (basically, they fused vertebrae together to compensate for the injured disc). Pretty intense surgery with rough recovery, but he's a million times better now. - John  312.5 #838 9:19PM
Get well soon.  - @ms_annette  40.5 #5201 9:20PM
Get well soon & prayers! - BeautyandTheBeast  142.7 #2842 9:21PM
John, question for you. Was he happy he did the surgery? That is the surgery/ option I am facing. - JGoldy  234.1 #1555 9:27PM
