Feeling pretty good but still feeling the aftermath of the disc operation but SLOWLY getting better. Had an interesting sclero thing. Before my back operation and them the recuperating my activity level was reduced. Been working a lot lately and am improving but the back is sore by the end of the day. At any rate I have been snowboarding a couple times on the easy stuff just to get out. The first time I went when I got off the lift I have to close the binding on my right (back) foot. With my bindings this simply means I have to bend down and pull a clip that locks the back of the binding up. So just been over reach the latch and pull it up - simple right? So I get off the lift glide away then reach down to fasten the back. Well first off I had trouble getting my hand down to my ankle level. Stood up stretched a bit and tried again got there but could not close the binding, just could not pull it up. Stood up again stretched and bent over got a hold of the latch and really pulled. As I did from my lower back where the incision was (disc was L2 and L3) all the way up to my right shoulder it felt like my skin was tearing away from my insides. Hurt but more shocking than anything. Very sore on the way down figured I would go in and call it a day. Got to the bottom and the pain was rapidly dissipating. Figured I would try again went up got off the lift and hooked up. Was able to get down no problem and no pain. So more flexible after. Very odd experience. I am thinking that during my lower activity level period collagen/fascia had increased and "stuck" me together. A little bit of a wake up in that I realize that I am still making too much collagen so I need to keep moving and keep flexible. Since then I have found out that the fascia layer does not have a lot of nerves which if true may be why it did not hurt for long. It was quite an experience though. I have never had that ripping feeling to that degree. I have had a few small spots that have torn loose from time to time early on but never that progressive rip that involved so much real estate. Anyone have any other ideas?
