but you can keep her out of the gym and no boxing.
Orthopedist ordered 4 weeks of rehab, 1 week of steroids, reassessment in 10 days, pain meds, muscle relaxers (to make it so (1) I can sleep and (2) so I don't wake up in pain).
This is so not the news I wanted to hear. But it's not like I didn't expect it.
The diagnosis? Cervical radiculitis.
If in 10 days I'm not feeling better we're going to do an MRI to figure out if there's a bulging disc (we don't think there's a herniation b/c the MRI showed a good inter-vertebral space).
Right now the pain has me out of the gym (even running on the elliptical hurts). So I'll need you all to run a mile or two for me until I'm all fixed.
The hardest part about all of this? I wonder where I'd be if I didn't have to deal with a crappy spine. Would I have reached my goals? Will I get to continue on?

As soon as I stop shaking and vomiting I will run a couple miles for you :) d@mn summer bugReply
oh gosh -- no summer bugs!Reply
I'll get my miles in for you this weekend. Hope your recovery goes well, and its nothing more serious.Reply
Thank you LF -- I don't know if it's more serious at this point. We always start conservatively with treatment. But definitely not surgery worthy.Reply
Ugh! I hope you feel better soon.Reply
Have you tried something like yoga?
HUGS from hot texas.Reply
I so so so get the injury-timeoff-FRUSTRATION thing.
Kasondra -- I have to be careful with yoga. I have really bad balance (yay bad back!)--so if I do it, I need it to be slow and near a wall.Reply
Miz -- as always, thank you for your love and your guidance. It's hard to feel like I'm out of the game -- but i can't neglect the mental and food side of weight loss. I'm still in this.
