Elisabeth explains how active she is after undergoing spinal fusion surgery.

Elisabeth:
Now that I have had my L5-S1 fusion and I am about eight months post-op, I have returned to normal activity. I have started yoga, which has really helped. I have started swimming again. I have started walking with friends. I hike mountains. I really have no limitations, and it’s really nice to not think, I can’t do that because of my back, which is what I dealt with for over a year and a half before surgery.

It’s really nice to be able to go out with friends and not be concerned that I can’t sit through dinner because I am going to be in so much pain. It’s just so nice to live my life and not have to worry about pain.
