I am seeking feedback from individuals who have had surgery and returned to the links. I am an avid golfer. I am targeting May 2009 to return to the links in game playing condition.
I had a microdiscectomy last June 2008. I am eager to return to the golf this spring/summer. I haven't picked up a club since surgery. I have been walking extensively since surgery and have done lots of PT, exercise core muscles daily, and now back at the health club lifting weights every other day.
I am seeking feedback on when you returned back to play, how soon ? Were you able to swing just as hard post surgery ? Did you visit a golf pro to improve your swing mechanics ? How did you score ? What recommendations would you have for myself and others returning to the links ? After playing did you experience any back issues or re-injuries ?
Any insights would be great.
