i am only on the trial now, but if things continue as well as they are , I will be getting the "REAL ONE' in aprox 4 weeks Nero says.
That being said, we are going with grandkids to Disney next year Sept 2010. Aprox 1 year post op ..
We try to go every couple of years , i am wondering if i will still be able to ride most rides . such as Splash Mountain, Thunder MOuntain and Dinosour, and jungle safari ?
i dont do tower of terror or space mt ..
i asked rep she said use rides with caution.. you dont want a lead to break off.. i wonder how much it takes to break? i steady myself against my DH and sit tight .. just looking for some thoughts?
thank you


  • Personally, I do not know why you'd want to risk it, or risk having a disc herniate.

    I'm delighted to hear you are getting relief! That is very good news.
  • I was told that it takes an impact similar to that of a motor vehicle accident to break a lead, and that is more pertinent to the percutaneous leads.

    I do things now that many would say not to do just because they are afraid of further or new injury. I refuse to live my life in a bubble or wearing bubble wrap around me for protection. Of course everything is a risk and once a person has a medical implant, then that has to be considered when doing things.

    The way I see it, don't put the cart before the horse. When the time comes, you will know whether or not you feel up to it. Listen to your doc and the rep and then come to your own conclusion.

  • Thanks for the replies.. Just cant wait to start living again.. even if i am not BRAND NEW ..:)
