Update....

I just got back a little while ago from the doctor and its not good news. My herniated disk is pincheing the nerves which is causeing alot of the pain but along with that one of my disk is begining to degenerate or in other words crumble. I am feeling kind of down and useless at the moment since I can't work or do the things I am use to and it just sucks because it feels like everytime something good happens to me (my new job I really like) something bad happens ( I mess up my back after 2 weeks of work). Anyway the plan is they are going to give me an epidural shot then some physical therapy to see if that will fix it. I asked the dr if it didn't then what and she said don't worry about whats next lets just see how this goes. Thanks guys for listening to me ramble and do my pitty party I know it could be worse I mean at least I have a husband that is being super great and supportive but still I just am not use to haveing to depend on anyone.

You'll be in my thoughts and prayers, too. It's not fun having to depend on other people. I hope the epidural and physical therapy will give you some relief.

Did the Doc tell you why the disc is degenerate? I've got a bit of that too but there are reasons for it. If you have to have surgery at least they have made HUGE advances in that field. I hope that's not the route it goes for you. You are in my thoughts and I'm hoping for some good juju for you. I'm glad you have a supportive husband. That goes a long way in helping you though this. Stay flat on your back for a few hours after that epidural. I was up and moving around too soon after mine and I had a headache that was brutal that lasted a few hours. It was nasty! Hang tough my friend.

Thanks Aunt Kymmie I will remember to lay down for a while like you say. She did not say what was causeing it and I did not think to ask her all I thought about when I heard degenerating disk was my dad and how much he hurts still with his after two sugerys. He has degenerative disk diease and has been told by two specialist that one day it may get to were he will not be able to walk.

Thanks Willow. No me neither. I was hopeing they would at least let me try to do some light duty work and the degenerating disk was a total surprise. I guess its good they did not give me light duty because I can't drive my car its a standard and I can't stand to push the clutch it even hurt to drive my sisterinlaws car yesterday to the dr and its an automatic.
