well its been 9 Months Since i did Lumbar Spine L4/5 Discectomy beside putting a Support between the 2 Vertebras as i had Huge pain in my left leg ...the Situation is :-
after Operation i Rested on bed for 1 Month of non moving then the 2nd month i began to move for a little Bit from the day i came back till now i have Lower back pain that never goes out after that i did Xray on my lower back and report says i should Strengthen my Lower back Muscles So i did Physiotherapy it Decreased the Pain alot but it was a Slow Progress and i'd like to Fast Recover so as to go back to running ... So the question is
1 - Can i go to the GYM So as to Strengthen my Lower back Muscles Faster through Weight Lifting (Very Light weights that ill Lift) or it would harm ?
2 - when i jog for 1 min or so i dont get left leg pain but my lower back is .. i've read that Jogging Strengthen lower back muscles so if i took a Painkiller and went out for a Jog would that help me or make it worse ?
i need answers as im very confused and very Disappointed to be Honest
Thanks in Advance
