One of the team leaders at work went in for an op on his back last year Helen, he'd suffered for years much like yourself, i was off sick from March and he had his op sometime after, he's back at work and i'm still off!
Take it easy following the op, it's hard for those of us who are used to being so active and it sounds like you are... but you have to think long term and of the bigger picture.
I was pretty positive throughout all last year, it only got me down a couple of times, the worst for me was when i was told i had to have a further six months of chemo, that was the same day everyone flew out to Italy, i was down for a few days. But you come around, so what, i'm still here, there'll be other competitions and opportunities.
I've learned a lot this past thirteen months, patience is one of them.
Hang in there, stay positive, and give yourself time to recover afterwards.
