  • Jason,

    That is the worst part for me too. Right over the back of screws/rods. I also have some scar tissue that is being a pain. My PT is digging into with her T-bar tool. It makes deep tissue look like a walk in the park... Doing that prayer looking stretch I sent you. That helps a lot to loosen the back up. Especially if you can get your chin dug into your chest. Close to flatten out on the floor then stretch arms as far as possible. Also remember the move left and right slowly and hold. It really helps. But I still have spasms when I sit and especially lay down. For a few minutes then it goes away.

    I got a few more exercises to do that I'll send you info on. I'm about to do an update in my journal this week sometime.

  • Yeah it is amazing that they can do that much work on your spine with only small incisions! Your scan looks good.

    Can understand your frustration at not being able to do body weight exercises, but good that Graham can help you with some stretches, etc.

    You younger guys sure are healing at a amazingly fast rate! I hope this is your first and LAST surgery! Be careful of over working the adjacent discs. I'm happy to hear the good news.
    Good luck, Jim =D>
