Golf after C3-C7 ACDF

I had a 4 level ACDF, C3-C7 done back in early June. Surgery went well, rehab has gone extremely well. Has anyone played golf after a similar procedure? Just looking to see what I should expect.

    People that have had spinal surgeries (cervical and lumbar) have been able to return to playing golf.   But almost 95% of those, need to adjust or limit the way they played.  There are a number of golf pros out there that specifically work with players who have had spinal surgery.

    If you just go out and do it on your own, you are taking a chance of creating some painful flareups

  • LSUFan1208 , I had a C3-C7 ACDF last week ( Jan. 9th ) . Please keep us informed on your journey back to playing golf. Fishing is my #1 passion & what I most hope & work toward being able to do again. Golf is right behind as for an activity I'm anxious to get back to doing. Hopefully, you'll have successful tales to share with us & help inspire those of us seeking similar goals.  Good luck.......Take care

  • I'm due for a L5/L6 & L6/L7 fusion in June and not looking forward to giving up my golf for a period of time. Hope to post updates on progress as it happens.
