Darling this is more than Herniated disk. I underwent another xray and it shows a shift in my lower spine. Sitting on the plane for so long left a lasting damage. Something moved out of position back there. I am being prepped for emergency surgery. The doctors here insists this is the only chance i got. Another 23 hour flight might break something irreparable and leave me paralyzed. They want to put in something to hold my spine together.
This is a nightmare.
