I was wondering how long after my surgery will I begin able to work out at the gym again.
I spoke to my Dr and he said after 3 months and well its been 3 months out of the hospital so far and I am still not sure whether or not I should work out yet. It was just 2 weeks ago I spoke to the Dr and he said my lower spine lumbar fusion of L1 - L4 is healing well. He said after 3 months I can begin working out/lifting weights but I have read online of many people who have had surgery done on their backs that they didnt resume weight lifting for 6-12 months.
I dont want to slow down my healing process if its not done yet and have read mixed things regarding resuming working out. Some people says start slow and not to go heavy until its completely done healing or some people say not to work out until your 100% healed. I havent done any physical therapy yet either, nor have I gotten a bone stimulator due to the hospital losing my wallet so I wont be getting a bone stimulator for another couple weeks.
