Do any of you have health concerns when it comes to the lack of exercise? I do watch what I eat for fear of gainning weight( doc says not good for ADR)but I dont consider that walk enough. Are there others out there that worry about this also?
I had ADR and ALIF in May 2009, DDD, spinal stenosis, major nerve damage in both legs, surgery was damage control to keep me walking as long as possible. Doc said that he doesn't want me walking more than a mile a day or trade off with light water arobics, absolutly no swimming!!!! I was an extremely active person before accident, ran 3 to 4 miles a day, bike rides with the kids, volleyball, basketball etc. Now I can barely walk mile a day without legs going numb and increased back pain.
I talk with doc every appointment and he says not to worry about it.He said my case is special and that I need to take it easy if I want to avoid the wheelchair in 5 years.But all this sitting and lying down is really weighing on my mind. Im intrested how others feel about this.
