The drive there took about 40 minutes.
The wait, about 4 or 5 minutes.
I saw the doctor for all of 3 minutes.
His diagnosis of my MRI: I have normal wear and tear. I don’t need surgery.
Great. So now what?
Well, essentially he said he would phone my doctor with some options for managing with the pain.
But basically it boils down to: strengthening my core muscles, keeping my weight down, and essentially not doing anything that’ll re-injure my back.
Other than the “don’t need surgery” part, I almost feel as if that appointment was a waste of my time.
Le. Sigh. And so it continues.
