hey everyone. I am 3 weeks post op and doing great. have had no significant pain since op. I am worried about the fact my doc is not talking about any PT. We have discussed going back to work April 1 which will be 6 weeks post op. Everyone i have read about here was sent to PT. I know i am feeling wonderful and walking 5 miles per day now with no pain. But i think im missing some part of recovery by only walking. It makes no sense that i am not able to lift bend twist or go to PT but i will be going from not doing anything back to be a firefighter at 6 weeks with no PT or training of any kind. I cant wait to get back to work and my doc knows this. But i dont think he would risk my back on my desire to go back to work. I thought PT was significant in proper recovery????????????
any advice anyone
