I'm 3 mos post lumbar discectomy and my neurosurgeon told me to go ahead and garden, etc... just watch because I would get tired.
So even though I started having recurrent radiculopathy in my leg about 6 weeks after surgery, I'm trying to live a "normal" life and I decided to be stupid and did lawn work today.
I feel like I put my body through a blender, and I was only out there for 30 to 45 minutes!!
My back is screaming, my arms are shaking (rofl, so out of shape) and my leg is dragging.
Any thoughts on when in the healing process I will be able to do this stuff w/out feeling like this? When did you guys get back to this kind of thing?
Thanks for your thoughts!
