Herniated disc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey

So I’ve recently found out (the hard way) that I’ve got a herniated disc.

Not only would my back lock up in painful spasms with pain shooting down my left leg, it also screwed with my timing and made me unable to hit the ball.

 

My back has been sore for quite a while and I didn’t pay it any heed, in retrospect really stupid but what can you do!?! I was doing so well on the course, I played a lot of nine hole rounds due to the fact that I couldn’t manage 18. Shoot a couple of 37’s a couple of 39’s.

 

So now my physician says that I can’t play golf now, maybe do some putting and chipping if it’s not to painful.

 

Any of you guys have experience of herniated discs and such?

How long is the healing time? Did you have surgery or how did you recover from it?

 

I love this game, most days!

I had the same. Some days could not walk. Went to doc and started with physio, some few drugs and finally surgeon said 'consider laminectomy' before some accident (falling off ladder, auto crash) severs your spinal cord. Took the surgery, walking ok next day. Within 2 months back to even better than before.
