Well, the MRI scans are here. I have a herniated disc (L5) and the picture is so gruesome even I (a non-medic) could tell what the problem was. The radiologist said he hadn't seen one so bad for a long time. Anyway...
Here's the thing. My exercise regime is going to have to change - lifting heavy things will need to be reigned in (unless I'm doing bench presses, I guess) and I'll have to go gently. However, I'm not used to being so much less physical.
Will I continue to lose weight and get more muscle definition, despite this enforced reduction in activity? I'm not planning on taking to my bed, but still, things won't be the same. Even walking is just too painful at the moment - I was doing 50 minutes a day, beforehand.
I don't want to go back to the 183 pound woman that I was, pre-primal.
Very, very fed up.
