Exercise after ACDF surgery? + how long after



  • Bruce EitmanBruce Eitman Akron, OH, USAPosts: 1,510

    How long after surgery will depend on what surgery you are having.  I think that you just had ACDF a few days ago - it is time for you to start walking unless your surgeon has given you instructions otherwise.

    I was up and walking the day of surgery after each of my two ACDF surgeries.  I won't say how much because by most standards it was way too much... So, start slow and see how it goes.  If it goes well, walk a little farther next time.

    It has been a process of healing, learning, exercising, and resting - and figuring out when to do which.
