I know everyone is different but is there a ballpark range as to when you can do some normal and not so normal stuff after a laminectomy and discetomy. Mine was last Thurs on l5-S1 and I can walk of course but other things like bending over, picking up stuff, elliptical, bike etc. How long for others who have had the same procedure. Right now I've been given the whole...be sensible an don't do anything that hurts and I have my follow up next week but I'm just curious about how others have progressed. I know I have to take it easy and can't risk reinjuring this or the one above which is not in the best shape but I want to make sure I don't take it too easy either. Thanks.
