Been a horrible couple of days…
I had a scare on Wednesday night that my back had failed. This has particular resonance for me as four years ago I underwent a double microdiscectomy in my lumbar region.
The prelude to this procedure was a miserable six months of pain and physio… a powerful motivation to look after myself as mcuh as I can.
The surgery worked really well but I am always conscious of my movement and general back health (another reason why I went lightweight with the backpacking).
This episode came out of nowhere, although I was warned to expect such things as I have a second rate spine… particularly for someone so tall.
Anyway, yesterday was spent doing mobilisation exercises and worrying. Managed to walk a mile or so which was a good sign and I’ll try to go further today.
Just got to take things easy for a while. Fingers crossed.
