I'm on week 5 since 360 fusion on levels l4-s1. Recovery is going really well I think, but how long does it usually take before you're back to being yourself? By that I mean, being able to watch your kids play ballgames without having to come back and lay down because of being so sore. I live an hour from any town, so even getting groceries is a pain. Usually at least 3 hours to get there and back, and really sore afterwards. I feel great while not doing much, but it seems like I can't do much of anything for very long. I'm 32 and this sitting around is for the birds. I'm so ready to go back to life but my body won't quite let me yet. Have any of you guys that have had this type of surgery played sports afterwards? I love softball and basketball but I've wondered how this surgery will effect that. I'm a huge auto race guy. Drag, dirt track, ATV, I've done it all and I know for the most part this is probably an end to those but i didn't know about the others. Anyone have any advice? If not thanks for listening to me rant lol.
