Yesterday, when I was squatting to pull weeds in the garden, I felt the familiar and old pain on the lower back all of sudden. Yes it is intervertebral disc herniation recurring on my lumber area. I slowly moved to home and have spent the day lying on a bed. I was operating radio a little bit.
N6TT Steve's daughter has had the same problem and had to undergo a surgery recently. I remembered of her in this pain. Of course, she might be in much worse condition. Pain is something which destroy the quality of our lives. After a night rest, I am feeling a little bit better. A kind doctor at our home on charge of me has given me a pill, a pain killer. It might be of help to me soon.
I know what has caused this. Lack of exercise. Without good exercise to strengthen the muscles on the back, the vertebrae should bear more weight. In some situation when there is more weight on the vertebrae, it won't be able to put up with it. It results in the herniation. I should start proper training on the back as well as walking.
Unfortunately, it is the day of parttime work today. I have wondered if I would ask the doctor of that clinic to take over my duty. But he might have things to do today. Some patients might miss me at work. I have encouraged myself to go to work. Yes, my trouble is not serious at all. But I hope readers to realize that some medical staff are working with their own health problems.
It is a real fun and pleasure for me to see old patients. So let's go!!
