Looking for opinions please. I had ACDF 5/6 & 6/7 on 17th June. Everything went well. Was in a hard collar for 7 weeks. When I saw my NS at 7 weeks he was pleased with my progress and basically said I could go back to doing pretty much anything...including running!! Lifting he said to stick to 10kg. His words were "you can go bungy jumping or even play Rugby Union "...seriously?? I am so confused....the physiotherapist seems to think it's too soon for running . I can't understand why my NS would be so blase about this. From everything I have read online, slowly is the way to go. I have no pain...slight stiffness in back of neck Your thoughts / experiences would be greatly appreciated!
