My Time on the Tennis Team
I have been playing tennis for seven years and when I got my surgery in sixth grade, I was worried about not being able to play again or at the same level as before. But, I was back out on the court a few weeks after my recovery. I continued to play tennis and build up my strength again and by the summer going into ninth grade, I was trying out for my high school tennis team. I made the team that year and the following year as well. I have had no issues with my back while playing tennis and whenever I tell someone I had back surgery, they are shocked! Being on my high school tennis team has been one of the greatest experiences and I hope to continue during my last couple years in high school. I hope this shows anyone who is unsure about playing sports after spinal fusion, that you can continue after and do things like playing on your high school team because it is so worth it!
