    Hi Guys!

    Just wanted to let you know that I had a small accident on Friday and won't be around the next couple of weeks very much. I feel like I broke my a--. Can't take the pain of sitting at the computer.....

    I had x-rays on Friday, they said nothing broken. Went back to the ER yesterday had an MRI and they said I have a slipped disc (between L5 and S1), but don't know if it was there already or new from the injury.

    I am trying to make an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to get another assessment of the situation as I have a numb sensation of my "saddle" area with difficulty going potty. (sorry to those of you who feel that was TMI [​IMG]) I am also under the impression that when they say slipped it can mean a variety of different things and could be ruptured.

    So if you need the ameraucana police, be patient as I will be off in la la land with my handy bottle of hydrocodone. [​IMG]

    We will miss you Jean and don't fool around with your back. I have a fracture in L5 that is just there forever. Don't just get 2nd opinions, get 3rd, 4th and 5th too!

    Don't count out a GOOD, reputable, Chiropractor for an opinion. Sometimes with simple manipulation and treatment they can prevent surgeries that are often worse than the injury.

    I wondered why PP just got away with spelling Ameraucana with an "i" in chat....
    I'm so sorry you've injured yourself. I only know how much it hurts to bruise my tail bone and that reeeeeeally hurts! Get as much info as you can and get better soon!

    Hi all!

    Feeling a little better today as I got some steroids last night. The pain is less severe, but I realize it may just be being masked, so going to take it easy.

    Have to see a neuro surgeon next week for the numbness.

    I best get off the computer now as I have spent too much time in a chair already......... [​IMG]

    Nice visual huh???? [​IMG]
