I posted a few days ago and was really thinking about having the PLIF surgery right after Christmas. However, I realized that everyone says walk, walk, walk, and I'm afraid with the bad weather in the mid-west during this time that I would not be able to safely walk (we don't have a mall in our town. Anyway, would I be able to use a treadmill and later on, use an eliptical machine. I don't mind the cold weather walking, it's just the ice and snow that will cause problems.
Thanks a bunch for sharing your experiences with me.
