Hi all. I'll be going back to work in a week. That will be 10 weeks out from l5s1 fusion with hardware. Because of the great, but hard PT, water exercises, and rest, I feel ready but am terrified. I have a pretty high stress job that requires 8 hours of sitting and am worried that I won't have the energy or discipline to exercise as much as I need. Any advice or back to work stories? I'm 52 and not ready to retire any time soon. I'm even considering switching careers to teaching so I can sit stand when needed. The area where I live is in desperate need of teachers.
