HOLY CRAP!!! Glad you're doing so well with so much hardware in you! Had no idea there'd be that much.

I assume you will still have full motion to bend at the waist but now be limited in how much you can bend over?

Those are some nasty looking screws!

The lumbar section is fused, the rods and screws keep the alignment and spacing and the bone grafts will reinforce everything. The hip, sacrum and lumbar section will be pretty much solid after three months.

Bending forces will concentrate at the bottom of the thoracic section so care with lifting and bending will be necessary.

It's going to be challenging... ;)

Airport TSA- I've traveled with a friend who had two hips and both knees replaced. we had to allow an extra 20 minutes to get through security. Medical notes and pictures don't get you through anymore.
Keep 'em Straight!! and quiet
