and go easy on the rehab, sounds to me like if youre still having strong nerve pain symptoms you should ease off the rehab and twisting and weightlifting shit, because strengthening your back and core is not going to relieve any pressure or symptom of nerve impingement (because you already had an extremely strong back and core before you got injured, as did i) you need that nerve to heal before you begin any sort of hard or vigorous strengthening regime again

you still dont sound in good shape, best of luck to you nick

I agree with the last couple posters who said REST REST REST.

Don't exercise, don't lift weights, don't run, don't train, don't do anything that aggravates the injury. Anything you do could add considerably to your recovery time and/or prevent your recovery in the first place.

Ya once the pain is gone completely I will start with these. I haven't been doing any lifting of weights that aggravates my nerve yet. I've been doing benching and upper back lifting so far and its good.

My physical therapist says its going good and I am doing everything necessary to heal the pain. Just hate to know its months away from hard training again, I really want to fight.

I wouldn't be disappointed in what I lost. I would be ecstatic at what I got back.

Congrats on the results of your surgery.

minimum 6 weeks post op

but ill be giving it longer than that

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 ;)
