I know this is not exactly the place to write this thread, but I guess people who have been excited when planning their next cycle and working hard in the gym and making plans, understand how it feels when your plans fade away. Yesterday I went to the gym, simple leg sunday I thought. It started that way until squats. I've had problems before with my back and few months ago, I hurt it quite hard again. So now I decided to take it easy on the weights and do just some reps more. I was just about to make my second squat, when strong pain went through my lower back. Immediately stopped the exercise and did a lot of stretching but felt quite bad. So I came home and then it started. I got about 30min of sleep during night, back was in cramps and hurt like hell. In the morning couldn't get up anymore, whole body was basically cramped. Called ambulance and now spent whole day in hospital. Neurologist said that a disk protrudes into the spine nerves, so surgery is needed to fix it. I have to quit gym trainings and start doing exercises after surgery, if I want to fully recover (swimming etc.) So there goes my plans and good mood...Just wanted to tell somebody.
