Re: [Tetsuya109] trying not to give up the sport i love and continue skydiving with a 3 level spine fusion (with a few other injuries).

I had a 3-level spinal fusion (C4 to 7). My right arm was paralyzed. Returned to jumping 20 months after surgery and made 8 jumps and started to have pain in my neck again. The problem is the openings. I didn't seem to have much of a problem with mobility in my neck. Also have a friend who had a 3-level fusion who also went back to jumping and is now facing another surgery. You have to weigh the risk versus the reward. Jumping is fun but so is walking and talking.
