I had a 5 level fusion with a corpectomy of C5 vertebrate about a year and 4 months ago. I have had success as far as the fusion goes. Still having a lot of pain however. Still on oxycodone, gabapentin, and baclofen. I have had several injections and I am getting another probably in the next month or so. But from my MRI it looks like I have a good solid fusion. What I am curious about is the experiences of others that have had a neck fusion on what they are advised to stay away from. I am going to Disneyland with my family and wondered what I should or shouldn't do.
I don't normally go on anything to extreme. Some of the tamer roller coasters maybe but mostly just some of the easier rides like "Pirates" and Haunted Mansion things like that. Would those be too jerky for me now? Or be too dangerous for me to ride ? I know most of the rides there whether they are extreme or kids rids say not for people with neck or back problems but not sure if it would be ok or not. Does anyone have any advice from their experience or any advice on making my trip easier and more enjoyable. I don't know what to expect since I haven't done anything since my fusion. I have talked with my pain management doctor and gotten his opinion and I also plan on talking to my surgeon. I am asking more for the opinion of those who have experienced it so I know what to expect. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
