I do not know what kind of mattress would be best for my husband and myself. 

My husband is 76 years old, 5' 6", 190 lbs. and I am 62, 5' 4", 128 lbs. 
My husband was super active til he had back surgery five years ago where the spacers collapsed. 
Ever since he has had surgeries to correct the problem but, until today we have a spine specialist redo his whole back from cervical to lumbar. 
I, on the other hand, am still active thank God but sometimes after running I get lower back pain.

What kind of a mattress do you recommend for both of us, focusing more so on my husband. Thank you so much. Susie
P.s. I don't care for mattress that feels like we are in quicksand. 

Thank You Susie,

A combination of firm support from the coil system and a sleeping surface that is comfortable without being too soft, is called for here.
With a back as sensitive as your husband's must be, it's equally important that the mattress be of high enough quality to maintain that support and comfort over many years.
As a whole, the mattress industry has turned from making high quality mattresses that are designed to last for 10-20 years…as they had in the past, to making mattresses that are meant to be more disposable….for the purpose of selling more mattresses. Most of today's mattress will last only a few years before needing to be replaced. Subsequently, they begin to wear much sooner, with the first signs of wear beginning to show within months. His back is way to sensitive to deal with this sort of fast change.
There are a couple of way around this…1) with an old fashion, high quality two-sided mattress that is specifically made to retain its shape and last, as in the old days…
…or 2) a firmer, ore basic model of one of today's standard mattresses with a 2" latex foam topper.
Latex is the highest quality upholstery material available. It's all natural rubber. Not only does it provide comfort, but because it is so resilient, it extends the comfort life of the mattress you use under it by absorbing most of your body weight. The mattress doesn't work as hard as lasts twice as long as it would without the latex topper.
The two best options are: The Therapedic two-sided Cameo plush, which doesn't need a latex topper…or the Simmons Beautyrest Dartmouth Drive Ultimate Firm with a 2" soft all-natural Talalay Latex foam mattress topper. Here are links to follow, where you can view these products.
