How serious is this one week post spinal surgery? Is it to be expected? A friend had surgery a week ago and still can't walk. I thought they try to have patients walking within a day or two. His prior medical history is one of a very healthy and active 44 y/o male, exercising regularly before (some type of physical activity daily....running, weights, biking, P90X, rock climbing, etc.)
Any info/help would be appreciated, I'm very worried about him.
