Hi guys, this is my first post so any replies would be greatly appreciated!
I'm 18 years old and had my Scoliosis surgery in March 2010, I'm not sure how exactly the technical terms for where I'm fused from and to, but I can send my X-Ray's in it that's possible, I'm not sure!?
I'm a highly active person, used to play soccer at a highly competitive level, and now I'm a gym go-er, I like to weight train 4/5 times a week really, up until recently... About 2/3 months ago I started experiencing pain when taking part in a cardio class, more of a discomfort in my lower back region. Sort of just played it off and carried on over the next few weeks and it progressively got worse to the point where anything weights related was a struggle! Just felt like an aching pain really, and like my lower back needed a good old stretch, which all of you guys would know is immensely difficult when you've been fused! Anyway, after the pain continued and started getting more uncomfortable I gave myself about a month out of all activity all together, and I've just gone back into eat easily, no weights at all, just on the cycling and X-trainer machines, but even after walking out from the gym I can feel an uncomfortable sort of stretch/pulling on the right hand side of my spine and it is very uncomfortable. I get the pain sometimes just sitting down too and walking , feels as if it's always there.
I went to my GP who ordered for new X-Ray's, so I'm getting my results on Monday, but just wondered if anybody else has experienced anything else like this as one hand I don't want to worry myself too much but would also like to make myself aware of anybody else out there suffering too!
Thank you in advance for any replies. :-)
