Thanks wabi! I've been absent from the forums fit a long time, but do I recognise you from the Snod forum a few years back?
Maybe I see myself as a 'runner' again so I'm back!

Thanks alehouse. Very wise words well received!
I've been very good and am taking things very slowly.

Today is a good day!

Spinal fusion

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 08:16
Hi Paul, I'm 7 weeks post surgery following a similar problem. However as an alternative to fusion my consultant fitted 'cofex' supports to my L3/4 and L4/5 disks which were all badly degenerated. These titanium supports are amazing, but I guess it depends on how had your disks have become. I'm now fighting for again, using a cross trainer happily for an hour a day and very much Looking forward to getting back to running.
Could be worth mentioning them to your surgeon as an alternative? I'm no expert of course and can only go what my surgeon said, but they seem to be something that is used for the more active patient! Good luck!

Returning after back injury

Ahhh Claire I have been exactly there. I'm now 7 weeks post surgery and still can't run but am able to be more active. I put a lot of weight on whilst I couldn't exercise, similarly due to comfort eating and also cos my metabolism just seemed to just come to a grinding that. Il be able to use a cross trainer soon so I'm focussing on taking things slowly and building my fitness back up and hopefully starting to she'd some weight.
What's the current situation with your treatment?

Returning after back injury

Good to hear from you Claire. I'm so glad that you're back running! All is good this end, physio happy and I head off for a two week stay at a rehab hospital (through work) a week Monday so I'm hoping they're gonna work wonders! Initially estimated that il be running 9 months ish after surgery but I reckon it may be sooner. But little steps they say, I'm only 35 so plenty of years running left in these legs I think! ????
