I was hoping to help my recovery by excersising & stretching (touching my toes & leg stretches) but everytime I try- my leg pain (nerve) flares up. It takes for ever to calm down.
I am scheduled for an ALIF in less than 3 weeks, maybe I should just stop pushing myself?? Do any of you know if this is something I should be doing or not doing? Is this a common trigger?? I'd ask my surgeon but I won't see him again until the day of surgery. I just want to up my chances of a smooth recovery.
