Just got out of the hospital. Pain was so bad we ended up calling 911 and I was seeing white hot pain when they carried me down the stairs. Haven't seen the updated MRI yet. Hopefully didn't rupture a disk (that would = fusion after the laminectomy). Now on steroids (needed IV in the hospital to allow me to stand again). Oral prednisone taper for the rest of the month. Fingers crossed insurance will okay the surgery soon. Steroids + no exercise = high risk weight gain (damn it). But I know that if I lost the extra fat & got strong before, I can do it again after my recovery. No more Crossfit wods for me the next six months, but I'll be back.

Such crushing news SVC. I don't think anyone who isn't a performance athlete can even understand how tough that must be for you. Good luck with it all.

Listen to the doc but research for yourself too, most docs deal with couch potatoes at our age and sometimes make some assumptions that may not be valid.

IMO, this is a classic case of having to listen to your body, and your doctor. There is no way to workout and stay injury free without the proper rest and nutrition. Parrillo Performance, one of the best nutrition companies in the business says there is no such thing as over-training. It's under eating. I totally agree. The formula we use in many areas of fitness is way too little fuel to accommodate the output. I am not talking about couch potatoes but rather an elite athlete like SVC and a hard working one like me.

Mrs. SVC, I feel your pain, literally. I spent 34 years with a broken L5 vertebra. It happened when some other kids pulled a prank on my while I was in the 8th grade. It wasn't diagnosed until 2009. By that time, I had a grade 3 spondelolisthesis, meaning that my vertebrae were sliding off each other enough to cut half my spinal cord off. The pain was very intense.

Recovering from my fusion wasn't a whole lot of fun, but it was worth it. I'm getting some pain back in my hips and legs. I'm pretty sure it's from the deteriorating L4-L5 disk. If it gets bad enough, I'll go to the doctor about it.

Hang in there. Getting the problem fixed is almost always the best course of action. The restrictions during recovery are worthwhile for the benefit of having the pain eliminated.
