I am 25 years old and have 3 herniated disks and spinal stenosis. My life has become very sedentary and it's something I am willing to experience pain to change. I have a husband who just lost 75 lbs and a toddler who is always on the go. I have done everything possible to monitor my eating habits and have been steadily loosing weight since the steroid injections two years ago. We will be going camping at the end of May. I would love to go hiking and biking. Do you have any advice on how I can do these things with my family and not have to be completely drugged up to endure it? Before my back got bad I bought a mountain bike with an extra padded seat. Would this be acceptable or do I need to look into a new kind of bike?
