I had my 1st spinal fusion when I was 13 in 1970 using my own bone. I had my last 3 spinal fusions since 2001 using titanium. I went from a perfect size 12 and running every day, to a perfect 16/18 and NOT running every day. I have fibromyalgia and depression. My day dosent start until late afternoon. My house is dirty and I can't stand the isolation. I want to walk every morning and lose this weight. I want to go back to a daily schedule and have some girlfriends again.
