Re: normal life after surgery
Welcome to the boards . Get this in your head right now , NO HOCKEY only vidoe hockey from here on out bud. Running ? I doubt it very much. I can see you able to work on cars ,but no lifting.
Think of it this way , your in a whole lot of pain now right ? Well after the surgery your pain will probably be alot less than it was, it was for me until my 3rd surgery maybe my 2nd ? Before my first surgery I couldn't stand or lay on my stomach , now I can't stand long and can't lay on my back or right side and can't sleep on my stomach. Take the good with the bad. I also have spondy and had a laminectomy and fusion L4-L5 but I'm very glad I had the surgery because before it I was in more pain..Your just gonna have to take it easy. You'll never be back 100% but I think you'll be glad you had it done. Really what can you do now ? Sorry you have to go through all this. Like Pepper /Yvette said there PROBABLY is people who is 100% and never come back here and talk to us. Good Luck with your surgery and life.
We'll keep you in our Prayer's[/B][/COLOR]
