I am 15 days post op from an L5 S1 fusion. Is anyone using an ellipical machine at this point? At my first post op I asked about it but she didn't seem familiar with the machine. I was told as long as its like walking, when mine is on 0 resistance it's still harder than walking on level ground so I'm not sure. I was told, nothing that is a workout but this wouldnt qualify as that either. The weather is getting nasty and walking in circles in my living room is losing its appeal. I would rather do that though than do anything to jeopardize my surgery.
