    is your doctor. They are the ones that performed the surgery and understand your restrictions and limitations. There really is no cookbook answer here. Each situation is different. Yes, there are some basic guidelines to follow

    But always remember, there is no one on these online forums that are properly trained to provide answers to your questions. We can give you input based on our o wn past experiences. But always remember that.
