Good Day! Is it OK and/or Beneficial to Exercise Pre Op Lumbar TLIF Surgery? I also have Stenosis and associated. I can't walk or stand for too long but I'm very flexible... I can do situps, pushups, and such. My sweetheart (who very well knows how flexible I still am...) is adamant about it being a bad idea.
I've had complications preventing my surgery for a long time and I've still got a long wait. I'm getting flabby in the tummy and generally my muscles are getting loose and weak.
I'm thinking that some core exercises would be beneficial and not do any damage... on the contrary, I believe the exercise will be beneficial for Post Op Rehab.
What are your thoughts and/or experiences?
