Default Re: Things you CAN do with a fused spine

I went snorkelling at 6 months and at about 8-9 months I started back kayaking. No problems. Swimming on my front I find awkward but swimming on my back is the same as pre-op.

Fast walking, gardening, no problem. Have been told no running or lifting heavy loads that might put stress on the vertebra above my fusion.
