Who has returned after spinal fusion?

Recommended Posts

I just had L5S1 spinal fusion on Dec 13th,2019. It was ALIF (from the front). I have a chunk of cadaver femur bone inserted where the disc was with some of my own bone graft from my own hip, then a plate over it with some screws. The rest of my spine is in great condition.

       Who has returned to racing from a lumbar area fusion and went back to the same results, pain free as before? 

     I am 43. I race expert in the woods. Debating on switching back to motocross for less time on track (body abuse) or to racing streetbikes (I am probably a novice on a street bike).

Had a C5 and C6 fusion in 2006. No problems. Have had a quite a few spills since then. I snowboard, and race hare scrambles. Just rehab like its your job and stay in shape.
