    Diving after a spinal fusion

    Well Surgery is done and dusted last week and now on the long road to recovery, I hope to be back in the water with any luck around October.

    My question for the medical boffins.. What are the drawbacks diving with a L4/5 fusion, other than weight bearing of gear "Yea I know I need to take it easy" I am keen to know if a lower lumbar full of titanium and scare tissue plus the fusion itself is going to cause me any other issues....

    Anyone else still diving after a fusion ?

    What do you have insite your Body on the right on the second pic??? a spiral...???


    From what i see here in the Hospital where i work is that after a Fusion the connecting segments have a lot higher "work load" than the other`s, the solution is to fuse the next segments.........maybe gearing up in the water is a good idea....


    Good luck and all the best,


    cheers Markku
