Steered clear of any rollercoasters at Disney and Universal although Doc said I could try them out...

I am back in the gym. Not cleared to lift over 10 lbs but Doc said running is ok. Been running at least 3 miles everyday and I feel AMAZZZZINGGGGG!!!

Best medical decision I’ve made for myself and my family.

Havenít followed up in a while. Iím not sure where I left off. So...

I went back to my FD shift 3 months post surgery in May 2019.

I reherniated my disc in October 2019.
I had the same surgery done in December 2019.

RascalArms posted a thread about it here:

https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...d.php?t=751647

During the surgery my S1 nerve root was severed and I had a cerebrospinal fluid leak that left me immobile. They patched me up. I was in the hospital for a minute and they went they went thru my abdomen and did a fusion on my spine.

Lots of recovery since then.
Wheelchair to learning to walk again with a walker to eventually doing it on my own.
(shout out to those several TBH members that helped tend to my house and yard during this time of need! 100% Iíll forever be in your debt.)

LOTS OF PHYSICAL TORTURE, I mean THERAPY.
Crazy how I went from not being able to sweep my house floors to doing squats on a Bosu Ball at therapy.

My doc released me to go to light duty at work 3 months after my 3rd surgery.
I have to wear the Mack daddy back brace but Iím doing it.

Anyways, itís almost 5 months post surgery and the doc cleared me for a light jog. So we tried it at therapy yesterday.

So, I jogged yesterday for the first time since surgery while I was at PT! It wasnít for long but we just wanted to make sure it didnít create any symptoms!

And Iím happy to announce No PAIN!
No back pain. No leg pain. Almost good as gold again.

YAYYYYYYY!!

I followup with my neuro in 2 months to find out about when I can go back to shift. If you asked me if I was ready now, Iíd honestly say no. Iím 2 years into my career and I have 18+ years to go. Donít need to jack myself up again and ruin it all.

Thanks for all the support and love and I appreciate my TBH family.

Back surgery used to be a crap shoot. 1/3 of the time the surgery was successful, 1/3 of the time there was no improvement, and 1/3 of the time it made the problem worse. Medical Technology and other procedure advancements have really increased the success rates. The importance of post-op physical therapy cannot be understated, either.

Keep up the good work!

Glad to know you have progressed well. I know EXACTLY how you feel. My wreck back in September left me with a shattered L3 along with other things. I had an L2-L4 fusion and had to go through the exact same stuff, wheelchair, learning to walk, etc. I still have significant stiffness after sitting down or laying down. Itís a good feeling to be able to return to ďnormalĒ after having to go through all that.

Thanks for the update report. Yep, follow the doctor's orders, and don't rush it. You have many years in front of you and a young 'un to take care of.

Now, about that tramp stamp...

But i absolutely know the pain you are feeling. It has crippled me off and on for the last 10 years.

Hope all goes well with your surgery. If you don't mind me asking, who is going to do the surgery? Texas Brain and Spine in CS is who I am seeing. They seem like a great institution and have good reviews. It wont be long before I eventually have it.
Since the problem with your discs is degeneration, have you looked into
PRP or Stem Cell Therapy? Iíve done it twice but neither was for a back issue.

be very careful with the brace. It will artificially give you support which will weaken your core and make things worse in the long run. Im no dr just my personal experience.

Nanny, glad you're doing well and pain free! I had the L5-S1 discectomy in August and also had the spinal fluid leak as well...that **** ain't fun! They patched mine with a chunk of muscle and some space-aged glue or some sort. Keep rolling along young lady!

I just read this entire thread. I’m a PT, and I know the gauntlet you have been through! Stay active and stay mobile. I have seen 90+ year olds that still do whatever they want every day and 50 year olds that are debilitated.
