    Question Help with back surgery

    I recently (3 wks ago) underwnt a thoracic back disk procedure and am wondering if anyone has had this type of procedure and how long it took you to get it back together. I am also scheduled for the same type of surgery for a lumbar disc in about 6 weeks. Can I think I might be able to start riding again in January? My Dr. has limited all activity for 3 months following the 2nd surgery. I am definately in the fossil over fences catagory but have a lovely AA mare that is going to waste and she is not getting any younger either.
    Any suggestions for follow up exercise besides walking, I have to limit bending and twisting tho am not in a brace. Thanks for any imput.

    I do not have any experience with this type of surgery--I just want to wish you luck as you recover.
