Out of curiosity, how many of you exercise since you had surgery? I am 10 months out from lumbar fusion, but still experiencing a great deal of pain, both muscular and nerve. Exercise and physical activity make the pain considerably worse.
I really want to get into better shape, as I imagine this will probably improve my level of pain. So how many of you exercise regularly, and what types of exercise do you do? Do you exercise through intense pain?
Today I did 30 minutes of yoga and strength training on the Wii Fit and walked a mile and now I am suffering quite a bit. I need help! P.S. I was kicked out of PT months ago because I was in too much pain.
