I happen to see this site from armymoms mail.PJ
My surgery was in the lumbar region as opposed to the cervical area. I had never heard of a shunt used in spinal surgerie, but then again my surgery was done between 1980-1992 when I was 14 and up. They did harvest bone from the hip for my fusions. I used to be able to do what I wanted within reason and hide the pain with Darvocet. I recently did something that has caused me problems so now I do nothing. I can just walk to the restroom. Have you seen a physical therapist or a physiatrist to guide you in exercises that will not cause injury? Best of luck. Feel free to drop into the 'monthly discussion thread'. We just talk about whatever, can be back related but doesn't need to be.
My name is Barb and I live in upstate NY. I am recovering from spinal fusion (c3,c4)and I have a shunt inside my spinal cord (t3-t7)and removal of a small segment of my right hip (which was actually used in my fusion) My choices were surgery or wheelchair. So needless to say, I would like to know what others are doing for calorie burning exercise under these circumstances. Please feel free
