  • I would think that if you have no other medical conditions and you heal very quickly that you should be able to make short work of a 360. Be smart in what you try to do afterwords and as I've said before in other posts just because you have had your back FIXED doesn't mean you can, or should go back totally to what you were doing before. I am talking about bending, lifting, and twisting. You really need to have the long talk with your doctor and do what he says. Be aware that most doctors will paint a better picture then what reality actually is. That has been my experience so take it as such. Do you have a general, or vascular surgeon lined up for the opening and closing on the front?

  • I too have been wondering how age plays a role in recovery, I am 10 yrs older this time, I am 54, probably a few pounds heavier too, But I went back to work with my "turtle shell" on and I had a desk job with lots of guys around to pick up things for me. I was pretty tired at the days end, its about all I did and I rested all weekend. I do have a lot of scar tissue, I assume since my 24" scar still hurts, It does what I call go into a snit....it feels like it is pulling and twisting at times. If I over due my back will hurt also. I also was stapled not stitched, which took me about 4 weeks before I could look at it, most ppl would look at it and say wow that is a lot, but my mom said, OMG, you poor thing...good ole mom!
    I have never heard it called a 360` surgery, but I guess it was. Now when I go fo an x-ray or the MRI like yesterday, the techs always say my oh my, you have had a lot of work done! Yes and more on the way....Always, Tara
