I see my surgeon on friday, 11 days post op, single level acdf. i expect him to send me back to work in two weeks with some restrictions. i want to make sure his restrictions cover the accommodations i will need to get through the day. what restrictions should i ask for? will sitting too long be a problem? will driving long distances? (i sometimes travel for work within a 250 mile radius.) using a laptop? working 8 hours straight?
i know everyone's recovery is different. just looking for examples and personal experiences. thanks.
