    Hi all, did a quick search and couldnt find my question so sorry if it has been asked but can you still go for a normal back massage with a fused spine? :/

    I was just curious, and I know this is a strange question -- but sex is still very possible with a fused spine, correct? As well as pregnancies?

    Being a dancer and figure skater, having my spine fused from T6 to L4 seemed like the worst thing that could ever happen.
    I can't skate anymore, and I would love to say I can do everything I used to, but I can't. Instead, I do other things! Like last week I gave a body confidence assembly in my school, using my back to illustrate a point. I use my fused spine to enhance my dance style, and in the summer, I went trekking in Ethiopia and found myself 4500m high in the African mountains.
    Restricted by my back? More like ENCOURAGED to live life to the FULL.

    GO GET 'EM!!!

    Just to let you all know - I am 21 months (almost two years :O) post op today, and I am fused t4-l1. I am 18 now, and have just started waitressing.. full time!! I never thought I would be able to be carrying heavy things, walking around and just generally being on my feet for 8 hours straight, and although it was pretty tough for a few weeks, a month later it's pretty easy to get through the day, and I don't get much pain at all!! I am now working 8 hours a day Monday to Friday, success
