Our company is having a team building event on 4/25 when everyone will go bowling. I am one year post op, is bowling OK? Any advice?

Sorry I don't have any advice since I haven't had surgery. I don't bowl now with my scoliosis. It hurts me too much. I would call up your doctor's office and ask them. They will be able to give you a thumbs up or thumbs down since they know your case. I hope you can go. Bowling is so much fun!

If I were you, I would go to a bowling alley and rent a lane with Dave and see how you do. Each person's fusion is a little different as is each persons way that they posture to bowl. Since you cannot twist and bend, my guess is that you would have to modify your bowling posture.

Check it out. My guess is, yes, you can bowl, but you need to modify your stance.

Good luck!

Ask your surgeon is the best advice

Hi...

Dr. Hu typically removes all restrictions at one year. I suspect she'd say that bowling is fine, but to stop if it's painful.

I went bowling recently and just used the lightest-weight ball (8 lbs) and just kind of dropped it, rather than trying to bend to throw it. Surprisingly, I didn't get sore. Have fun!!

Had a great time bowling! That would not have been possible before the surgery, but today I had zero back pain doing it, but my arm is sore. I was using medium weight balls. Need to hit gym more often.
