Riding coasters is OK as long as you haven't experienced any dizziness during or following any ride... If you ever have, all coasters are off limits... However, I wouldn't recommend coasters of any kind until a full year has passed since surgery... You can actually cause permanant damage to a healing sturnum with those type of g-forces...
