In my opinion, I have recovered pretty well from the surgery which was 1/7/14 so 4 1/2 months ago. It was a single level C5/C6. The only continued pain is burning in between my shoulder blades which my doctor says is postural and not disc related…Im not sure about that but we shall see. My surgeon never took any X-rays but at my 90 day follow up said I could start golfing just leave my driver in the bag this year. So 6 weeks later - 4 1/2 months after surgery I played a round of golf - I felt pretty good afterwards but woke up sore the next day as expected.
I can't find much info about golf after ACDF online. I was hoping people could share their experiences and insight received from their doctors…..timing, is it ok to play before a solid fusion, etc? I don't want to be too aggressive and put myself in a position where I set myself back or don't achieve a solid fusion.It was great to get out there but I am having buyers remorse, so to say, and am wondering if I should back off and wait longer before returning to the course.
Thanks and I hope everyone is healing well!
