Spinal Surgery ?

Has anyone had any type of spinal surgery and still riding? I get my MRI on Tuesday with an appointment with a surgeon to follow. I've been limping since Oct. with pain in buttocks, coccyx, posterior lateral thigh, calf, and between ankle and achilles tendon. I've had some accupuncture treatments, but they made the pain worse; an ambulance took me to the ED for X-rays and IV pain meds. The current pain meds make me stupid and irriatable. My competetive days may be over but I still want to ride.

For recovery-follow DR's orders. After hearling & PT, lots of people go w/gaited horses,they can be easier on the back, BUT not always,there are plenty of rough-gaited horses in every breed. My friend has a big TWH for her hubby-she's not the smoothest, but she doesn't do anything wrong-her own Walker is much smoother. so you do have to try them out. Hope you will be OK.
