Hi, my name is Amanda. I just joined SP yesterday. I had back surgery in June because of a herniated disc (around L4-L5) that caused excruciating sciatica. Glad to have the surgery and be out of pain, but I'm almost afraid to exercise. The doctor didn't really give me any long-term limits on anything (just temporary limits during the first few months) but the thought of exercising scares me! I don't want to injure myself again (especially because I have no idea how I herniated my disc in the first place) I have always been big but since the surgery I have gained 25 lbs. But I shall give all of this my best shot :)
