Long story short: bulging disk. Regular old back pain.
But it was really painful since Tuesday and the radio-oncologist wanted to make sure it was nothing cancer-related. The fastest most efficient way to get a CT scan was to go through the ER, so I spent my Saturday reading and wincing. It’s all done, it’s just back pain and they even threw in a few pain killers as a parting gift!
