I have 3 herniated disks in my lower back. A couple of months ago the pain got worse. It spread into my leg and I thought it was sciatica. I had an MRI done a few weeks ago, and it shows that one of the disks is bulging into my spinal column, compressing the nerves which is causing the pain to spread into my leg. When I asked what we can do about this, my neuroligist said simply, "Surgery".
Aww crap. I've got a 5 month old baby and a 9 year old son who demands just as much (if not more) attention than the baby. I don't work right now, my husband's a waiter so we live off his tips (which are extremely well). How am I supposed to run a household while I'm recovering from back surgery? More importantly, how are we going to come up with rent if my husband has to take time off? *sigh* this sucks.
