We all pretty much understand that after we have any type of Spinal Surgery we will have some restrictions.
For some people, that becomes a challenge and they realistically put actions into place to do the things they did before.
For many members here, being faced with spinal surgery and what happens later becomes almost to difficult for them to approach.
With all my spinal surgeries and recent complete shoulder replacements, I have found ways to still enjoy much of what I did before without jeopardizing my condition.
For me, one of my biggest joys is gardening. Doing all the work that is necessary to have picture type lawns and shrubs. I realized that I can no longer do those physical things, so, I've adapted.
- Setup up 20+ containers, various sizes, shapes and colors. This allows me to work with them, without having to bend and do a lot of lifting.
That is just one simple solution.
I would be very curious to hear about others and how they have had to adapted to continue a full and meaningful life.
