Hello Good People
I've been told by the surgeon that I'm more of a candidate for ALIF rather than ADR as my spine specialist originally suggested. So I'm starting my research over again... there's never enough info! :B
It's been suggested that toilet seat raisers are helpful. Based on your personal experience, would you suggest the ones with or without the handles and why?
On a different topic...
Realistically, I know with back problems you should limit heavy lifting. I've read on here that some people were limited to 10 lbs initially, and then ultimately 20 lbs. Being single and not always having an extra hand to help me, I tended to do more than I should---therefore my disintegrated disc! Heck, the kitty litter I buy at Costco is 50 lbs (I only have one cat, really) Seriously, after fusion, say 3 years down the road, what's a real weight limit?
Thanks for your help. I've learned so much from all of you, in fact, I just bought a memory foam bed topper from Overstock.com Where else would I learn this stuff? =D>
