Hi my friends,
Just wanted to touch base and maybe get some advice.
I have degenerative disc disease. It causes me to have bouts of sciatica. I have a pinched nerve which causes excruciating pain and is so disabling I can't walk.
Well, about 3 days ago I could barely get through my workout on the treadmill.
Since then, I've had such horrible pain I can't even workout.
I always stay on the treadmill for about an hour. I burn 600 calories in that hour which keeps me able to get into the only pair of pants I have left that I can fit in to.
Since I quit smoking the beginning of June, I have put on 30 pounds very fast. I smoked for 54 years!
Now that I can't workout, I'm afraid my weight will soar even higher.
I'm having a procedure done on the 13th of August where they will be putting injections on either side of my spine. I'm hoping this will enable me to walk again because just an hour ago I had to get my crutches out of the storage room.
Is there anyone that can advise me on how to deal with all this and keep from gaining weight?
Thanks for reading.. have a great day..
