I am an active person that sets realistic goals. I have experienced chronic low back pain for over 6 months. Because I have tried all other options the surgeon suggests that the best course to end the pain will be a lumbar fusion. I've avoided this as long as I could and now must face up to surgery.
My goal is to be in top physical shape so I can sail through surgery and recovery and heal quicker than anyone in the world has ever done. That goal is not meant to be unrealistic, but to keep that image in mind as I work toward my goal.
I want to get my core in the best shape its ever been in. I don't want to wish I'd have done more. I want to know that I did everything possible.
