Let me preface this with an 'I will call my Doc on Monday' :)
I am new to running, though have been doing spinning for quite some time and am in good cardio shape, with strong legs...
I had a discectomy with fusion and plating of C6-7 in Oct '05. In English...ruptured disc removed and donor bone and metal plates/screws inserted in my neck.
I have had NO problems whatsoever since surgery. Was told to do anything I did previously...but running wasn't part of that.
Since starting, the only place I am sore/achy is mid-upper back...a bit below where I had the surgery. A few people have said it's normal when just starting running to have pain in this area...but just curious if there are any runner's out there who have had the same/similar type of surgery and how it's been. I am not going to run again until I've spoken to my doc, but's it's always helpful to talk to people who've been there.
