ill start light weight lifting 6 weeks post op, maybe a little bit sooner
but ill be back doing technique jiu jitsu easilly 8 weeks post op, but no rolling thats for sure...
alot will depend on what my neurosurgeons physiotherapist says in the first 6 weeks, and after 6 weeks my neurosurgeon said he wants me to work with his exercise physiologist, so only time will tell at this stage.
im currently 10 days post op and feel great, all nerve pain is gone, 90% of incision pain is gone
only have a mild ache in my glute occasionally, which is very normal considering what my nerve has been through for the past 4-5 months and should pass very soon, and gets better every day.
but no sharp nerve pain, can do straight leg raises pain free, im completely cured of sciatica ruling out any immediate injury in my near future
going to see neurosurgeons physio for my very first post op appointment tomorrow tho, on day 11, and she will do extensive testing to see my nerve function etc
looks really promising, i cant wait to get in there and hear the good news ;)
