    I am very interested in the outcome . How do you feel after the fusions ? what difference in mobility ? 

    Haha Eric

    just a week in recovery so this huge fusion, we shall see — but prior ones just stiffened local area. It’s a question of choice-I had none.  But this large job may do it for good👌🐾🐾👻

    no canyon slamming scrip in hand!  It will be a while🦉haha, and so much taller with all my new discs- Now, thank God GTs have lots of headroom 👍

    Eric,

    Top to bottom staples out at 2 weeks!

    9 hours surgery rare but it takes usually a week or more in hospital and to walk, and very long [4 months...] recovery.  This technique: walk day 2, Out in 4 days, 6 weeks recovery, each day easier.  Once a spine goes unstable, large fusions become needed.

    Finally thinking of ordering new Porsches for improved slamming -- and tided Sky over with  RR LWB order!! 

    Seneca so different after removing her cancer, she looks like Sky now!

    Now hikes needs to grow beyond Sky's stickSmileySmiley

    Yes -- not GT3 country here --  although I successfully drove the US GT3 before flying, the one lane dirt is really .... only for  El Yeep, as is my back currently...

    Wouldn't it be great if Porsche had a real 4WD? Never gonna happen.  But Sun's Yeep is the Titz, just goes everywhere, farming long, farming wide! 

    Sky however, has got a RR LWB coming stateside as he has high speed long runs between his dirt runs, and the RR can run on pavement in the 100's instead of dawdling along at 90 mph in his Rubiconsmiley

    The Rubi can't be that slow if you've equipped it with a radar detector. Many speed traps way back in? indecision

    Hi Joe!

    Hope you're Rockin'.  NZ speed limit:  60 mph/100 kmh.  On SI, some cops will let 10-15 over slide, but NI, only 7 over.  The SI Roads are so bumpy and twisty, Sun only hits 90 mph rarely and run the Rubicon 110-135 kmh on the B highways [vs 130-200 in the GT3], but radar is always good also in towns w 50 kmh/70kmh.... My farm country you can hardly get over 60 kmh in the Yeep on the pavement, and the dirt and metal, too steep, too bumpy too curvy.

    Sky is running to AZ etc so long straights, just park it on 90 mph, and radar for the hidden centre verge CHP, etc.  But running North say on Nevada 2 lane to Idaho, the RR will allow travel at 135 mph, no cops no nothing.

    Home sweet home

    Haha Joost

    Getting better, thanks!!  Up to 800 vertical feet, over 3 miles, with little mountain steps, never stressing my tiny lung capacity, over 3 miles with rest off days.  Protein good fat veg. Still ways to get back to daily 6 miles, 1100 ' vertical and handling foster Labs.  Grinding it out, but focused - can't fall, slip, trip, lift, bend, reach or twist.

    Using Zimmer bone stimulator for the next 9 months, not a short recovery.  Strength slowly returns.  Be glad I ddin;t send a pic from 3 weeks ago, skinnier than Ghandi....

    Surgeon banned Porsches and the track for 6 months, but I'm shopping!!, and the Yeep is easy to get into and goes on my current roads.  And luckily, the shyster dealer CCS in Auckland, could'nt deliver the RS on time so I had cancelled before my back went massively unstable -- be no fun to be looking at an undriveable RS....  I did trial run Sky's PCCB no lift GT3 twice stateside gently... couldn't help itSmiley

    And it could be worse hiking like this, and the Southern Alps impossible.Smiley
