I'm sorry if these are already covered else where on the forum, I had a bit of a browse & couldn't really find answers.
I had a Microdiscectomy at L5/S1
1. Has anyone (pref England - NHS) had a physio referral post op, to help/guide recovery?
I've not been given any guidance on when I can start doing more intense activity (other than initial physio exercises) & am not due to see my surgeon until 3months post op.
2. Does anyone have any idea how long I should wait before starting to jog/run? I've been told no contact sport until I've seen my surgeon, so I'm hoping I can start jogging/running before that.
3. & how about cycling?
4. Is it realistic to aim to complete a 10km run by May 2015?
Thanks in advance for any support/advice/guidance.
