So I had scoliosis (back) surgery two years ago and well, I was naughty and rode before I should have, oops. The docs told me I could start riding after a year and well I rode about 7 months after hehe. Nothing bad had happened but I have noticed something. I almost have to relearn to ride because I am so much more balanced! I know this is a good thing but I find it wierd because I have ridden 5 years before getting this surgery and I learned to balance differently. I can feel myself trying to get back into the habit of attempting to sit straight by putting my left shoulder down and that is making me unbalanced. Its hard to explain, sorry.
By the way the scoliosis surgery recquired me getting two bars put into my back from neck down. Quite scary, but I sit sooooo much straighter in the saddle!
Does anyone else have a similar story?
