I am finally to the point where I am afraid to do anything physical for fear of hurting myself more. I would also consider myself a fall hazard. Besides the lower back fusions I fell 6 weeks after my last fusion in 2009 and broke my back. Seriously? Yep, had a kyphoplasty to put me back together get again. My gait has weakness in the left leg and I just don't feel secure. What do I do??? I can't be this young and have my whole life on a bed, in the house, not enjoying the very basics. Here's a good one. I was getting up from dining and my leg is weak so I have to push off with the back of the chair. The chair gave way and I crashed into the next table of diners. I don't want to been seen like this. Im embarrassed. I look good but my body is failing me. Depression? You bet! Damn back. I HATE IT. Coming back to spine-health made me realize I am not alone. On the daily though, I don't seem to say any of you "spine fellows" out and about. Suggestions for movement??? A walker. Oh Im not THAT person, maybe I am. NOT good.
