Re: When Can I lift my 30lb toddler?
HI - I read your other post. I suspect from what your MRI said that you probably will be offered a multiple level ACDF. Let us know after your appointment.
If you have multiple levels it will be longer, more like 12 weeks or more. I wasn't allowed anything over 10 pounds for 3 months for a multiple level surgery. Especially something which required bending over.
You should be able to do simple care for the kids after a couple weeks, but with caution and creativity on how to bend etc.
