Karen's microdiscectomy has started a long recovery. The six weeks of no lifting puts a dent in your lifestyle.
Karen is managing a team of friends to help her at the house with Katherine Elizabeth, our baby girl. She juggles a lot of schedules to get enough people to cover the week.
The key thing to remember is that microdiscectomy does not repair the disc in question. It only removes the herniated disc material. The disc can reherniate especial during the first six week after the procedure. The disc needs time to heal.
