I am 6-week post operation, I had a C6-C7 fusion with a titanium plate and 4 screws. I am wearing a hard collar and taking ibuprofen and thiocolchicoside for pain and muscle relaxation (once a day). Besides some tingling in my left hand fingers and a burning-like sensation across my pinky finger and all the way to the elbow, so far I feel good. I am very active person (tennis: 3-4 times/week and running, at least once/week), I was wondering when do you think I could start exercising again? I also had plans to travel alone to Europe in three weeks, do you think it will be wise to reschedule it? On Monday I will get a X-rays and meet with my NS.
I just find this video in YouTube about Precautions and Excercises after spine surgery
I found it very helpful and clear.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
