Neurosurgery: This is a question that should be taken up with the neurosurgeon as the answer will be based on the severity of the injury and risk of injury due to a roller coaster ride.

Although that: Might be a causative factor - I really can't answer that question. The reason is that a provider who doesn't know your past surgeries & experiences would be guessing. Be well.
