Havent wrote on this website in a while but ill just give you my story first in a nut shell.Basically had scoliosis and had two operations a few years back to correct it including a two rod fusion all the way up my back..was tough going but got through it in the end.Then had another surgery last year because one of the rods were loose and started to bludge outside my skin a bit so some of the rod got cut off.
Anywayz the reason that im writing this topic right now is that ive always been an active lad,im only 21 still and ever since my surgeries ive been a little slower when trying to be active and i havent really been playing sport the way i used to cus im always felt and still feel at times very tender around my body and also a bit of pain due to my surgeries but i do mostly think its all in my head as well.
I just feel that if i allow myself to be more and more active i might hurt myself or do damage to my back.Ive been running alot lately and was thinking of taking up more football with the lads and also tag rugby and golf.My back is suppose to be fine but sometimes i feel like its not cus its too tender or its painful at times but i think thats because i havent been using those muscles in a while.Im just really paranoid about my back and its suppose to be fine according to my surgeon and i dont want to be one of those people who used to be so fit and active to being slow and basically known as a old man or something.
I used to be so active with cross country,football,atletics,rugby(cant play it in college anymore due to my back),golf,tennis..you name it!. Now i feel that i can hardly run down the road without getting out of breath.Ive been running the last few days but its taken its toll on my body and on my mind as well.
If anyone could give us advice please do because i feel i can only talk to you people about this.Thanks for reading and so sorry about the long rant,i didnt mean to type this long.
