| | Is exercise harmful to post discectomy?
Hi...it's Lisa again. I've decided to streamline my question, instead of rambling about pain, history, etc. Can anyone tell me of their exercise experience? I am being told no gym workouts after 4 months post discectomy (L5-S1) - two of them, after first one failed. Only short walks. I'm also told that instead of the 6-8 week recovery, this could take two years to fully heal? Does it really? I mistakenly thought of a discectomy as a minor procedure. Yikes. Lisa
