Ok, first let me say that I will not be doing anything before my 6 week post op, probably later like 2-3 months, even though my doctor has already cleared me to return to most stuff but with a 30lb limit.
I am just curious of how others who were big into strength training prior to their surgery went about returning and how long you waited?
I know everyone heals at their own rate, no one can give me medical advice and that I will never get back to where I was(finished with squat and deadlift). I am just looking for how others went about returning. Cant find anything anywheres else online and my surgeon isnt any help as he says I am fine to do stuff now. I know it is too early and want to be as smart about it and get back gradually.
I would love to hear other peoples stories. Thanks
edit: it was a laminectomy, L5S1
