I went back and reread the posts regarding walking but was not able to figure out how early, on average, folks are walking after lumbar fusion surgery. I know everyone is different but it would help to have some sort of general go-by. I'm defining walking as something done outside and intentionally - not just walking around the house in the course of everyday activities.
And for those of you who are early walkers, how long did you walk in the beginning in terms of time? 10 minutes? 20 minutes, etc.
Would appreciate any guidelines and experiences you can share with me. Also, anybody work out with light free weights for upper body strength and if so, when did you begin.
As always, I appreciate all your help. Kathy in Atlanta
