VLOG #3 is up! Full video link in Profile. Insta Meetup with neurosurgeon Dr Evan Winograd @neurorunnermd .
.
Dr. Winogard is a sixth year neurosurgery resident! That means he is always busy!! When I was a resident, I could barely feed and clothe myself (with clean laundered clothes that is) - it was THAT busy!! In this preview clip, we do a quick inspection of his apartment expecting the worst. #truelife of a resident!

Sun early a.m. / Sun mid afternoon

Started off first thing this a.m. same as every a.m. since being diagnosed with Hypothyroidism / Hashimoto's (and for the rest of my life) with taking my medicine. But, that was almost not the case.
-
If anyone hasn't had to deal with the hassles, the frustration, the complexity, and, well, the insanity of this current insurance system, then count your blessings.
-
Long story short . . . Mid 2016 referred to a 2nd Endocrinologist, Dr. Khan, as the 1st referral and her staff were rude, dissmissive, and quite insulting.
-
Dr. Khan was the nicest, most attentive, and genuinely concerned about, not only my Hypothyroidism / Hashimoto's, but what turned out to be Retrolisthesis and Facet Joint Arthritis.
-
FF>> to 2018, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield pulled out of Boone County leaving only Cigna who doesn't cover University Hospitals and Physicians, where I was going for everything through BCBS, rather they cover Boone Hospital.
-
Had to establish new Primary Care Physician and Pain Mgmt Dr. relationships but not without a lot of difficulties.
-
The new PCP orders new blood tests (turns out all the levels are in range) and follow ups are scheduled.
-
Got a new Cigna insurance card a few weeks ago with a new PCP listed on it. After a few calls find out the the previous PCP split.
-
Levothyroxine Rx was running out this week but the new PCP only works with nursing home patients, found out after a few more calls. First available appointment with a correct PCP is not until October AND that a new Rx can't be prescribed until then.
-
After a couple of calls to Univ Hosp & Phys talked to Jennifer. Got my latest lab test results relayed to them along with a quick trip and . . . got a new Rx that will get me through Oct.
-
So, with that, I want to say a big THANK YOU to Dr. Khan, Endocrinologist extrodinaire (and her assistant Jennifer) and I appreciate everything they have done to help me out with this situation.
-
Dr. Khan has always gone the extra mile and, I'm sure, always will. Hopefully, someday, I'll be able to go back to Dr. Khan, covered by insurance.
-
And this was the long story short🙄

Also did Yoga today👍

You know it's real when oxycodone barely even takes the edge off! I've been to one physiotherapy session, my back is completely strapped up, and I have been doing my exercises religiously for the last three days. I know that this is going to take a while, but I would like my vertebrae and discs to slide back into place now. Please and thank you.

Today was a day where it was worth it to spend my spoons. We went out by my husbands family about an hour away. Ate good food and had fun, but now I pay for it. We have not seen them in awhile and my step daughter asked if I was nervous. In that moment I decided to be honest. I was not nervous about seeing them again, but I was nervous about giving hugs with my pain and how long I could last. You see living with chronic pain, even if the pain is not high , it constantly keeps you on your toes. I have to plan each and every second and hope my body will cooperate long enough. Even hugs from family is something that can be dreadful. To go out I need to pack kt tape, lidocaine, pillows, tens unit etc. Chronic pain does not allow one to just get up and go. The positive is that I can still plan and am able to do a little bit. I like to look at my pictures from #nevada in these times. We are home now and my pain is climbing. I like to remind myself that there is an answer out there for me. It keeps my thoughts my own rather than allowing the pain to take over. Love and hugs to you all!

Tune up Sunday! My back has been nasty these last few days... so I decided to dig out some knots in my hammies, glutes and hip flexors... it for sure helped! Now to keep it a regular habit.... that’s the hard part!! #herniateddisc #selfmaintenance #tuneup #sundayfunday

So many tumbles over the past week. Out of hospital finally, no feeling in my legs and so much excruciating pain. I have never cried in so much pain, never have I wanted to the pain to stop so badly. The medication I am now on is ridiculous. One small act of stupidity has changed my life. LISTEN AND TAKE MY ADVICE...... never be pushed by an employer and never put that rush on your own shoulders. We cannot do the impossible. And that goes for rushing for work in the mornings, it's better to be later in this life than early in the next. If you feel pressured in your job and that might result in an accident then BOLLOCKS to it. I have ruined my life. My job is now running wow, and meeting up and helping service users. I myself am now undergoing a 4 year programme to battle mental health and ptsd, I am the first in this country to undergo and try this treatment. And now I have to get these legs working again and get strength back in my spine and legs. What was slipped discs, and a damaged shoulder has progressively worsened to a continuous prolapsed disc than has nipped and trapped my S1 nerve root over and over resulting in damage neurologically. Now I struggle to get my legs to move, lift, or feel anything. Resulting in 2 cancelled holidays this year. All of this on top of battling mental health, yes I can say it, I AM STRONG, I AM A FIGHTER and With support from my family and friends I'm able to keep pushing, keep trying, keep being the levi I know I can be. I just wanna say thanks to all of you supporting me. Bit of a delay, but I'll be back and with some big big projects coming up with some exciting people. @wow_mental_health @levi_versano #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #deoression #myson #myeverything #myworld #mentalhealthsupport #backpain #herniateddisc #neurologicaldisorder #neurology

📝 To the stubborn doctor that said you’ll never walk normally again and you’ll have chronic back pain forever. I’m feeling great thanks to some awesome colleague PTs & books 📖 & research studies. Perhaps you should update your research to see just how many people can overcome nerve damage, herniated discs & spinal injury’s...because I’m not the only one ☝🏼 if you’ve had some awful diagnosis, it doesn’t mean it’s permanent! It probably just means your doctor is old school or doesn’t care (don’t get me wrong many doctors are caring and research often enough to not make grand assumptions)💟...Focus on the overall balance of your body, do your homework, put in the work & life can be what you make it 👍🏼💪🏼and most importantly...NEVER GIVE UP!

My life is more than just fitness! I have a VERY well-balanced lifestyle! Right now with recovery for my herniated disc, fitness has not been my number one priority. •

Trust me, I will be back! Still controlling what I can, building my online training business and putting the final touches on my second business that I am going to be launching! •

My goal right now is to get my quality of life back... slow and steady wins the race! So for now stretching, muscle release work and small easy rehab exercises are my focus! I want to be able to drive for more than 5 mins before my legs go numb, sleep without the pain of muscle spasms, go wake surfing, play sand volleyball, go golfing, etc! I want a full recovery before I start to push my body in the gym to ensure I do not cause more damage because I want to be able to pick up my future child off of the floor without pain, run around and play with them with absolutely no setbacks. •

It’s been exactly 3 weeks since I was paralyzed, so I am very happy with my progress thus far! I am hoping it won’t be more than another four weeks before I’m back! Thank you to everyone who has helped me; @andrearose_fit for helping dress me, dry me off after the shower and keeping the situation light with a ton of laughs! @lewy_fit for being my personal flipper in bed (you should see the struggle trying to roll) and keeping my mind right with so much hope, faith and positivity! •

Chances are that you’re planking the wrong way. 😣
Sorry, but someone’s gotta say it!
🤷‍♂️
You’ve got to realign your spine and focus on which muscles you’re activating to get the most out your plank. The mobility exercise shown above will help 👍
This is part 1 of my correctional video for the plank. Watch out for part ✌️ tomorrow!

📌 Vamos aprender umnpouco sobre a hérnia de disco?

A hérnia de disco ocorre quando parte de um disco intervertebral sai de sua posição normal e comprime as raízes dos nervos que se ramificam a partir da medula espinhal e que emergem da coluna espinhal. Esse problema é mais comum nas regiões lombar e cervical, por serem áreas mais expostas ao movimento e que suportam mais carga. A fisioterapia para hérnia de disco é importante para a recuperação do paciente e tem como objetivos aliviar a dor, melhorar a função, fortalecer os músculos das costas e prevenir o agravamento da lesão. ✅Curta nosso facebook: 👉👉 fisioterapia.hospitalar ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #anatomy #herniateddisc #hernia #fisioterapia #treinofuncional #physio #hérniadedisco #herniadedisco #fisio #Fisiocomamor #physiotherapy #medical #musculacao #medicine #pilates #educaçãofisica #pilatesbrasil #herniateddiscs #physiotherapist #enfermagem #musculação #ortopedia #ortho #physicaltherapist #educaçãofísica #colunavertebral #educacaofisica #fisioterapeuta #physicaltherapy

Surgery. Is there another way?
✔️
My decision to avoid surgery came after considerable discussion with medical professionals and research. I brought many questions to my own family doctor, to my physiotherapist, to my chiropractor and most importantly to the neurosurgeon. I spoke to a highly credible medical professional in my own family and he also connected me to communicate with another surgeon. It was a scary prospect and a decision I took very seriously.
✔️
I learned that 500 thousand patients in the US have lumbar spine surgery per year. (I live in Canada but easily found US statistics). Of those 500,000, 40 percent or more continue to experience pain!!! Some studies quoted this at 50 percent. That is staggering considering all the risks taken to undergo any surgery.
In an articled discussion with Dr. Rosomoff M.D. he described “failed back surgery syndrome”, and stated that there is a documented 50,000 cases, every year. These are people who underwent back surgery and continued to experience chronic pain. While at the American Academy of Pain Mangement symposium, it was his opinion that surgery should only be performed in 1 in every 500 low back cases. He felt that this would eliminate 99% of all surgical cases that could be treated by alternate means.
✔️
My conclusion was to do everything I could to find an alternative path to avoid surgery. In the beginning of my journey, I relied upon pain medication and basic physiotherapy. After months this way and off of work, I intensively tried dozens of therapies until I found my way to pain free days. My detailed journey can be found via my link in bio. ✔️
I encourage any of you with chronic back pain and debating what to do, to find yourself examples of success and decide for yourself the right path. I hope to serve you as one of these successful options.

"Antes de pensar em CIRURGIA procure um FISIOTERAPEUTA!!"
Hernia de disco é um dos fatores que mais provoca dores nas costas e alterações de sensibilidade para coxa, perna e pé. Aproximadamente 80% das pessoas vão experimentar a dor lombar em algum momento de suas vidas. A localização mais comum da hérnia de disco lombar é no disco que fica entre a quarta e quinta vértebra lombar (L4/L5) e no disco que fica entre a quinta vértebra e o sacro (L5/S1).
Na maioria dos casos, os sintomas melhoram naturalmente com três meses, mas podem ser auxiliados com tratamentos clínicos e fisioterapêuticos. Mesmo o paciente se sentindo bem sem tratamento, é importante que ele faça um programa de tratamento voltado para a funcionalidade normal da coluna e para o seu fortalecimento.
As pesquisas são categóricas: após os primeiros sintomas de dores nas costas, os músculos que protegem a coluna vertebral começam a ficar fracos e atrofiados, por isso a necessidade de manter uma atividade física e fortalecimento muscular.

Iets van wandelen ofzo.
De pijn is verschrikkelijk vandaag. Zelfs wandelen helpt niet. Liggen helpt niet, zitten niet. Spuugzat ben ik dit hele traject. Dat je als mens zoveel pijn kunt hebben en dan nog blijft leven heb ik me nooit kunnen voorstellen.
De tranen liepen net over mijn wangen tijdens het ‘ wandelen’ ik weet het gewoon niet meer. Overal zie ik mensen lopen, hardlopen, fietsen, bewegen, gewoon leven en ik... tja. Snel maar extra pijnstilling😥

When I was a kid, I would eat ice cream at every opportunity - if I was allowed to, I would've lived on it! When I was at my sickest, about 10 years ago, ice cream was one of the few things I could stomach - I practically lived on Oreo McFlurries. Nowadays, I rarely eat ice cream because I never know whether my body will accept or reject it! Today's visit to Le Caravelle, after a Vietnamese feast, was definitely worth all the tummy pains I'm having now! Their coconut gelato is my fave. No regrets.
