How do you know what is too much? When we saw hubby's surgeon, or rather primarily his assistant, he said hubby could do whatever he wanted EVEN GOLFING and he would not damage the fusion process. But he also said he should not carry more than two bags of groceries. He starts PT on Monday and I am hoping that they will give him more direction on what he should not be doing. Because on here so many are saying not to BLT until the fusion takes.
