Just so interested to see the differences in Doc orders post single level fusions. How long are you supposed to only lift 8 pounds, how long are you not allowed to drive, how long do you have to wear your collar?
I am pretty certain no driving for 10 days, no collar and nothing heavier that a gallon of milk. Still not sure how long I will have that weight restriction. But worst thing of all no showers. OMG- I shower every day. Did buy a tub bench and a HH shower . Supposed to go to wedding 10 days post op . Have to figure out how to wash hair at some point prior to the wedding. They may not let me in the wedding.
I am a but concerned about throat pain and difficulty swallowing . It seems to last a bit and if I am traveling that may be a challenge. We are staying in a time share type of unit so will have a stove and cook soup and eat soft things. Probabaly will need to bring my own food to wedding.
Would anyone mind sharing their precautions and restrictions and the length of time that they are enforced? Thank you, Lisa
