My surgeon said that 6 weeks after the surgery I can return to work working out etc as if everything was normal. But from my reading online everything says the healing can take months to a year to completely heal. How long should I wait before sprinting again and lifting weights(such has leg press and others that strain the back) and doing other high impact exercises?
I want to make sure I do not have a recurrence and dont want to rush back into things. but at the same time I dont want take things too slow that I dont accomplish my goals.
