L4 and L5 and Sciatica

I thought it was Lyme Disease that had gone to my hip and leg. So did the doctors. An MRI shows that it is a disc protusion. I can’t figure out if this is a bummer or what. It’s good to know that I don’t have permanent damage left over from the Lyme of the summer months. But I don’t like the sound of disc protusion. Maybe it’s just what it is, and I should move on from there.

Next week the doctor will lay out the next steps. I am hoping that Physical Therapy will do it. Sometimes I think I am doing better, certainly much better than early summer. If this progress continues, I could be on my way to a full healing (though I wonder about there being a continued weakness in that area).
