So I had an MRI on Monday, and last night I got the results. I've herniated the same disc that I messed up back in 2003. I had a feeling that was the case. The thing I can't remember is how the pain and lack of mobility I'm experiencing now measures up to what happened back then. It seems somehow that it's worse now, but at the same time it seems to be following a familiar pattern: discomfort at first, followed by incredible pain, which dissipates with the help of pharmaceuticals and time. I hope I can avoid surgery again.
