    Surgery

    I had a lumbar/sacral fusion along with lumbar stenosis irrigation on 1/29. I go home from rehabilitation tomorrow. Restricted to no bending, twisting, or lifting over 10# until after follow-up with neurosurgeon in mid March. Also getting around with a brace and walker. Good news (if you can call it that) is I am at rehabilitation the same place as my mother.
    I hope LOML can tolerate whittling shavings until I can use the vacuum. I can only take so much Andy Griffith and I hit my limit on that with bronchitis the 2 weeks before the surgery.
    Glad to see everyone here is doing well.
    WHAT BOX?

    Maybe you can take up the scrollsaw as well..LOL But it is hard to sit around and not do the many things you love doing!

    Good luck, keep your spirits up, and get well soon.

    Here's wishing for a good recovery.

    I've had a prolapsed disc since I was 18 (30+ years) so can sympathise somewhat.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one having to sit out Woodworking for a while. Though your stuff appears more complicated than my broken arm. Take the time to recover, something I'm trying to learn as well.

    Check out the Golden Girls and the Hallmark valentine movies - Seriously, do what they say and give your body some time. Sure hope you make a complete recovery.

    Re: Surgery

    Wow Dennis, hate to hear that but glad you are in the recovering process. My mother and sister both had spinal fusions and such, know it is a process but the results can be rather complete. Wish you the swiftest most pain free recovery possible my friend.
    I didn't know there was a limit to Andy Griffith though - I can still watch them non stop... although Debbie wishes I could/would with my mute button on.

    Hope all goes well with your recovery. I have 3 fused vertebrae in my neck. Recovery took time but wasn't any real problem.
