70/365 Dr's Visit

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I went for my follow up drs visit
I have to go to physical therapy get an MRI & c a neurologist or neuro surgeon (I 4get which one 1st).
I have deteriorated and deteriorating cervical disk.
Sooooo I have to make some changes to my workout.

I cant lift anything over 5 lbs; I m 2 continue with no jumping motions and I have 2 watch strenuous activities (not sure about that one) I did ask about the classes (body combat- yoga - zumba n start body pump) and at this time I can continue as long as I stop if I feel pain; I will have to do body pump with just the bar.
It will take at least a mth for the appts to be set up.

    Take care of yourself! Maybe ask if that is something that can be fixed with Vertiboplasty. It's where they put a cement stuff in your back in the affected areas. It's minimally invasive and is an outpatient surgery. My dad had it done on a compression fracture in his back not long ago and it worked wonders. I don't know for sure if it's something they can do for you, but it sure wouldn't hurt to ask. :) Love you! HUGS!

    It is a lot to take in, but do follow the docs orders. I am surprised and I am sure you are happy he let you keep some activities. Don't get too discouraged. Substitute somethings he told you to stop with more Zumba or walking. I know it is just one more thing piled on this plate your juggling along with all the others you have in the air too.

It sounds as if there maybe something to fix that causes you pain which could be good.

Hugs to you, keep your faith.

    Take care and follow your doctor's direction and don't over due. It wouldn't be worth the extra time emoticon emoticon
