Hello everybody. It has been a while since I have been on here. But I wanted to share my experience so far with my spinal fusion. So Back in January I had my surgery and from there it has been nothing but up hill for me. I seemed to take it all very well. I was up within minutes of waking up from the procedure and walking around. Never had a brace. The first month was the hardest for me. But eventually about 4 and a half weeks in I cut out all my pain meds. I have been through physical therapy. And am still going to the same place but now i pay like a gym membership. I am up to running 2 miles 3 days a week on an elliptical machine. Plus since surgery I quit smoking and I love the fact that when I run I am not hacking out my lungs.
I'm back to work full time. I just planted all my food plots for deer hunting in October. Also I just went on a Big Eye Tuna fishing trip and did very well out on the ocean and fighting the fish. Today I am in no pain at all. Thanks to the greatest surgeon in the world. EDITED out of EDITED in Royal Oak, Mi. I am still trying my best to take it as easy as possible and not do any jaring motions or being very careful not to fall. I would say that all in all there is light at the end of the tunnel. Just try to be optimistic about it all I guess. I say that because before I had the surgery I was rightfully scared. I want to say thank you for everything you all have done for me. Answering the oddest questions from me and with the most supportive information. Thanks for the support. Take care and i am always thinking about you guys.
