Before I had my ACDF in February, I was given a home program to do exercises 3 times a day, daily. After my ACDF, I switched physical therapists and they gave me a home program to do exercises once a day, every other day.
I wanted to know if this is typical to do such light exercises after surgery. After I saw on the news today a story about the first successful hand transplant patient doing 5 hours of physical therapy a day, I thought maybe my program is not at the level it should be. She is 8 or 9 months post-op from this transplant and is able to drive a car and is able to feel the sensation of heat and cold. Any thoughts on this? :?
