    Default Post surgery return to skiing stories

    Having recently had a discectomy at L3/4 and hoping my Dr will let me ski in January (booked and paid for trip to Niseko to continue the slackcountry learning journey) makes me wonder about how you have recovered after surgery of whatever type. Tell your stories.
    Any woman with a pile of offspring and a sword means business! I'm standing well back!

    You know my story. Happy to chat by pm or imessage. Though my injury was very different to yours and not sure that my recovery methods will suit your injury. Determination is right up there at the top though and I know you have plenty of that.

    I cut my toenails last night. I plan to ski tomorrow. I have my Drs clearance.

    I'll ask Mrs Chunky tonight when she gets back from work. Since our last ski trip she has suffered some very severe back issues - spondylitis (not sure what type) and she has had to have regular sessions to get it to the point where this coming trip is going to be feasible. At one stage it looked grim and it has partly come about from her occupation as a theatre nurse. Long periods standing in the one place do not do your back any good especially as she has been doing it for almost 30 years. Being in a similar area (maybe) it might be interesting to see what she did.
    Do it the snow way!
