weight lifting limit

Hello, had surgery on my C3, 4, and 5, had hardware put in between each, does any one have any idea on how long I will be off work? My work is at a grocery store and we lift 20 plus pounds, check and so forth, thanks!

Re: weight lifting limit

Welcome to the board. There is another board that you will find if you scroll further down the main page called the Spinal Cord Disorder board. Most of the cervical folks hang out there and could better answer your question.

I've had 3 lumbar surgeries including two fusions and the typical weight limit is 10 pounds for the first six weeks...varies from surgeon to surgeon...and you'd be off work at least 2 months, perhaps longer.

I think cervical fusions are a bit less time.
