Nicole Holcomb qualified for the Central Regional last month, but had to withdraw due to a lingering back issue. Holcomb is having a follow-up surgery today to repair an L4/L5 disc herniation that did not hold.
Holcomb’s first surgery was back in September 2016, but after pressing too hard to get back she re-injured her discs and must go back in to repair it again.
On having to re-do the surgery, Holcomb shares, “I had a hard lesson but it’s soaked in…..do things right, no shortcuts, be patient.”
Monday will be Discectomy Surgery #2 (#thedos). After #theuno, I immediately felt better. Rolling with the no pain/no gain philosophy…I pushed. But, we learn and build in layers and my shaky bottom layers fell through. I had a hard lesson but it’s soaked in…..do things right, no shortcuts, be patient. Monday morning I’ll be walking out of #thedos happy to be on the other side and ready to heal to 100%.
And like that, Holcomb is already out of surgery!
