Ok, I had an L5/S1 fusion 12 days ago. I got my staples out about 4 days ago. My first return visit and Zray appointment is a week from tomorrow. In the meantime I amdoing what the Doctor ordered and that is walk, walk, walk.. Let me tell you I am so happy and proud of what I am capable of doing just 12 days after the procedure I went through. If you would of asked me 10 days ago if I thought I would be up and about like I have been the last 3 days I would of said your a NUTS!! So this takes me to my question.
Tomorrow I am going to the gym to walk laps on the track. Would it be horrible if I did ANY type of light weight workout that has nothing to do with the back or putting pressure on my spine? I am talking thing like seated curls with LIGHT weights, maybe some light band exercises that do not consist of me bending or twisting? Now please remember, I am not talking about squats or crazy things like that, I am saying "simple" exercises where I am not put in any type of position to put pressure on my lower back.
What do you all think?
