New to this forum but not to back issues.
Recently (5 weeks ago) had anterior spinal fusion: 2 level L5-S1 and L4-L5. Everything went GREAT! Home 2 days later, up and around easily every day. Wearing a Boston Brace w leg hasp. Walking around 2 miles each day. Doing stretches and exercises that PT gave me the day after surgery. I want to do more.
Pre-surgery was working out (weight machines and swimming) as well as walking 5 days per week. When can I return to the pool? (even if just walking or stretching)
Incision is healing great. No soreness, tenderness or broken skin. Are indoor public pools ok?
Surgeon is out of town for 2+ more weeks and his staff won't give me an answer.
Just looking for others opinions at this point if you were in the same shape/condition at some point...
