Hi I am new to this Spine-Health website forum. But not new to spine issues, my recent diag has me heading back to OR for an extension to my existing L3 to S1 fusion to be extended up to prob T-9. I have severe Degen Disc Disease and have had my neck fused at 2 locations as well, I am 56 yrs old and had my first back operation in my30's. Am very active riding my bicycle and am hopping after this fusion I will still be able to ride my bike. Are there others out there that have had this fusion as I am slated to and can weight in on post surgery activities or limitations? Thanks, Jim
