Are Roller Coasters out of the question?

  • Cause I love riding coaster and the like. I would never bungee, even if I had a perfect back, because I think it is a totally stupid idea. But, I think about hang gliding and sky diving quite a bit.

    Even if my Dr. told me I could I wouldn't. I know my body much better than my Doctor. IMO they put the warning signs there for a reason.
    Good luck to you if you decide to ride

  • I agree, the warnings are there for a purpose. I also like to "push the envelope" and do things I shouldn't. Sometimes it is self destructive, but more often than not it is just fine.

    One Love,

    You can ride a virtual roller coaster or two from the safety of your computer chair. I get my "thrill down the hill" with my icepack firmly secured to my back!

    Have fun and let others enjoy the real ride. Virual reality is enough for my aching back!
    Cheers!
  • I was wondering about things like rollercoasters and other things after my Microdisectomy. I am eight weeks post-op right now. How long should a person wait before...

    Running?
    Riding a horse?
    Having a baby?
    Is it true your disks are at risk when you fly?

    Thanks,

  • After a MicroD I wouldn't worry at all about roller coasters. I'd wait at LEAST 12 weeks, though, if I were you. But this is also assuming the rest of your spine is stable.
  • tears to my eyes.

    But good luck to those who can. I hear some ppl get back to skiing and stuff.

    I wouldn't do it for anything.
  • Of doing it live, I do think that is a great idea. Thanks for sharing!!! :)

    One Love,

  • After a micro D I think you should be fine.

  • After going through the surgery for my two level lumbar fusion, I don't think that coasters would be good for me. I am over three months out now and I cannot even jump just a little bit without consequences, at the moment.

    Just recently I told my 8 year old daughter that I would probably not be having any more babies since my back is screwy. She says to me "Mom, don't say that you are making me sad and I feel like I want to cry." I told her that I would most likely not be able to ride a coaster with her, and she did cry. Boo hoo like. It totally broke my heart, and it amused me a bit too. Not her heartache of course, but her reaction to those two things.

    One Love,

    Stephanie
