Riding after spinal fusion?
have a question. Has anyone on here had L5-S1 fused ???
I hear thats the most common past to have fused when you have back issues. But, Im trying to find people who ride that have had it done.
My b/f will be getting it done soon. We looked on the internet and found lots of people that said how great it was, no more pain, etc. Only the occasional person that said it was a nightmare and theyre always in pain now. Usually those people also had dozens of other issues and had other back surgeries.
hes never had any other back surgery. I told him I would ask on some horse forums to see if any riders ever had that particular area fused and if they can ride again, which is what he is worried about. Of course.....if he cant ride a horse, then he probably wont be able to do his job either (military) and will be really screwed!!!!!
