I had ADR and ALIF on May 11th and I am doing great!!! My surgeon said no swimming, hot tubs, or baths for 4 months. I get the hot tub and bath due to trying to get out of them but what about swimming? Im not looking to do laps but would like to wade in the pool or lake to cool off and beat the heat. I thought it might be because of the insision but its all healed up. Anyone know why?
