Hi can anybody help me with some information please. I had a fusion at L5 S1 3 weeks ago. I am feeling OK tapering down meds but quite tired still. I have looked on the net but can't seem to find an answer, at present I am not under a physiotherapist. Can any one tell me when is it OK to resume light ironing sitting down? Poor husband is working full time and is finding it difficult to keep on top of the chores. He's not lazy he has his own health issues and he's 64 soon to retire. If it's going to be some time before ironing is allowed I will employ someone to do it as it's a job too far for him! The trouble is I've only ever worked part time or not at all and he's been rather spoilt!
