Tom’s turn for back issues

This happened a few days ago on April 23.

So, Tom hurt his back way back in 2012 when he was at Quantico for Advanced Comm School. He got X-rays taken but was told nothing was wrong.

Fast forward to today when he hurt his back working out and went to the doctor. His X-rays had been digitized and attached to his account and as soon as the doctor saw them he told Tom he had degenerative disc disease! He was clueless how any previous doc could have missed it!

So, that sucks. But! He is now allowed to go to a chiropractor at no cost! He will have another appointment to determine the extent of the issue, but in the meantime, he’s taking drugs.

One thought on “Tom’s turn for back issues

  1. Degenerative disc disease is pretty generic. Everyone at some point has it, especially as your bones age. I’ve had it for YEARS. You probably have it. Just means your bones are getting older. He may have incurred an injury that sped things up a bit, but it isn’t as awful as it sounds. Just the aging process. Welcome to life, eh? Hope you feel better Tom!
