Question normal life after surgery

Been having back proplems for years and found out last month that I have pars defect spondylothesis grade 2 30% compressed disk. They want to do a Laminectomy- fusion at L5-S1. All I have read are bad things has anyone returned to doing what they did before? Like running, walking ,jogging ,hockey ect? I have a little problem with my left leg being weaker than right. My butt is sore both sides. I cant lay on my back without alot of pain. My back though is very painful when I move just right its a shootting pain.

Re: normal life after surgery

My daughter had congenital spondylolisthesis. She was a grade II with a 33% slip. She had a fusion at S1 - L4. The L4 was showing degeneration so they fused both levels. She was an active teenager prior to her slip advancing. She is 20 months post op and is leading the life of a very active teenager. She bowls, ice skates, went on the snowmobile some, goes tubing and played high school tennis in the fall. She hopes to be cleared for water skiing this summer. I'm not looking forward to that! She was young, only 16 at the time of surgery so she healed very quickly and had a great outcome. cas
