First , I would like to thanks everyone for all the warm wishes to my mom ,
currently she's getting better , speedy recovery , thank you Allah
A lot has been asking what was my mom illness ,
occay , she got this disease called the degenerative disc disease ...
what happened is , the disc between her spine - lumbar bones , lost its funtion
the disc is supposed to be the cushions between the spine bones ,
however in my mother case , the disc is " corrupted "
due to ... well , let me put it this way ,
my mom works hard day and night to raise her kids ,
working everyday as a teacher , and also as housewife...
had taken it's toll on her...
the pressure was too much ,
and the disc cannot bear the pressure on the lumbar...
hence , it's herniated / potrude...
eventually , as the pressure on the disc worsen everyday ,
it herniated inside ..
and hit the nerve ..
which cause the symptoms ... painful during walking ( back pain and also pain at the lower limbs)..
and worse , cause numbness to the lower limb
it's typical in elderly people..
more common in elderly ladies
and my mom is on of it casualty
the pain worsening during standing , walking .. and worst when u bend down
it's relieved by resting ...
and eventually ,
u'll need surgery to release the pain..
as she cant bear the pain anymore
she undergo discectomy and decompression for her lumbar stenosis last tuesday
it was a succesful operation, everything went well
currently she's recovering ,
but still warded..
cant wait to see my mom walks again....
