I'm getting fused T4-sacrum. Will I ever be able to put on tights again?

Also, do you get front closure bras?

I am fused C2 - sacrum and yes I can put on tights. For the first 12 months, I could only put on footless tights , but now I can put on footed tights as well.
You will have much more mobility and flexibility than I have so you will be able to.

I have to use front closure bras but I do not think most of the ladies here do

I am fused T6 to sacrum and yes, I can put on tights, pantyhose etc. It's not as easy as before the surgery, but I can do it. I used front closure bras first few months after the surgery, but I don't need them anymore.

I am 64 and can put on tights, but it's not easy for me. I have some footless tights that I wear with boots and they are much easier.

WOW! I was JUST making fun of myself to my family about how ridiculous I must look putting my tights on! Lol! I am 21 weeks post op tomorrow, fused T4 to L5 and I've been wearing my tights for quit some time now. It is indeed odd and slightly difficult but some how I manage but like I said.....I am sure it's quit funny too watch. Best of luck!!
