    Default Riding after neck surgery

    Just wondering if anyone has expirience riding after neck surgery. I had a cervical diseconomy and fusion at c4-c5 5 weeks ago. I'm young so the dr said I should recover well but I can't ride for 6 months while the bone graph fuses. Has anyone had a similar surgery? Were you able to come back to riding fully? I'm a jumper rider and also play polo and am a bit nervous to play polo again... although probably stupidly, I'm not really concerned about jumping.
