I haven’t posted for awhile due to my busy schedule, but mostly because I haven’t been able to do anything since I’ve been back from the Big City. While I was there my Doctor swung through and while we were hanging out I showed him some problems I’d been experiencing. Primarily my right leg seemed to be week in a couple of spots. I was unable to do a calf raise on my right leg and this caused him some concern which, in turn, caused me some concern.
I got back into town last week and the doc did a repeat of the evaluation and I hadn’t gotten worse, but neither was I better. His first thought was to get me to a MRI a.s.a.p, but with a few exercises I noticed a small amount of progress. So we are hold for the MRI, but Beatings has been put on the side line until I can do more physically. This is especially frustrating as I’d hoped to go to class and do a modified workout, but the doctor wants to hold off. I was wondering what I can accomplish, but I’m afraid to go backwards. So I think I’ll watch class and see how everyone is doing and eat bitter.
Diagnosis – injured disk. Pressure on sciatic nerve lead to calve and foot weakness; pain in areas of range of mobility.
Treatment – traction and specific exercise to increase fluidity of nerve channel around hip joint.
Prognosis – ? I guess we wait and see. In the mean I’m a half a man (I can kick on one side with no problem, but barely on the other).
