wow - this place has changed. it's been a while since i have logged onto spine health.
i just wanted to pass along an update to those of you that were so supportive during my surgery personal life.
as some of you may remember, i had spinal fusion earlier this year. the day after my surgery, i went into respiratory failure and spent almost a week in icu in a medically induced coma.
well, the bad news to come out of my surgery was that i spent a week in icu and my wife cheated on me.
the good news was that i was back to work one week after leaving the hospital, starting lifting weights 2 weeks after my spinal fusion, travelled to china for work 1 month after my surgery and i am in the process of starting a san diego support group for individuals with spinal cord issues.
my message to all of you is that spinal fusion works!!! i can walk 10 miles straight without stopping, lift weights, play basketball and live life like i used to. my only limitation is high impact cardio.
i also wanted to thank the 10 of you that were so supportive after my surgery and my newly single life. this message board is awesome!!!
by the way, here are some pics over the past year of my life:
