Tattoo question

Hi guys, just wondering can anybody tell me how long after surgery before you can get a tattoo? Is it just because of the infection risk that they want you to wait or is there another reason?

Re: New, terrified, confused, scared, UK based

I second what everyone else has already said! If it's not hurting and it's not progressing, then don't rush into it. I know sometimes surgeons can put pressure on you to go under the knife but if you...

Re: Clicking at the top of the fustion

I'm glad you asked this because I've been getting it too. It's the bit just above my fusion and it is a bit unnerving when it happens. I feel better about it now though so thanks :)

Re: 7 month post op // exercises?

I was put on a physio programme 6 weeks after surgery and stayed on it until about the 4 month mark once they were confident I could do the exercises properly. I don't know what your op was like or...

Re: Swimming...sort of! (and looking to the future)

Lol, that's a great analogy! Seahorses are brilliant though, so I don't mind looking like one of those.

On a similar water-based note, do you know of anyone who has scuba-dived post-fusion? I can't...
