... Since your doctor hasn't given you any specific time as to when you can start running or jogging or playing tennis I suggest you ask him before doing those activities. ... (13 replies)
... This is me today - 3 weeks from the same surgery (C6/7) and I'm 5' 2" and gained 10 lbs. I started jogging exactly the same as you (jog /walk for 4 miles) and FINALLY feel like my normal self again but worry that I'm doing something wrong. I'm wondering how you are today and did this effect your fusion? Thanks so much for this post! (13 replies)
... Much as I want to resume jogging and tennis, I do worry that bone fusion has just begun and it seems pretty risky to go that route. ... (13 replies)

... Jon-My NS told me that it can take from 6-12 months for everything to return to normal. I'm 4 months post op for a 2 level and my arm still is numb at times and week and the pain I had in the bicep is still there. As for running and jogging, at 6 weeks postop I was also told NOT to run or jog. Walking is fine and encouraged. I'm sure your surgeon gave you instructions as... (13 replies)
... I agree with all those that posted about reserving tennis and jogging and anything over strenuous, as the fusion has not healed yet. ... (13 replies)
... Thanks for the input Bunz! I feel fine today and am actually surprised b/c I have been quite active the last few days. As far as 4 miles - I didn't run the whole way I alternated "jogging" (being very careful not to pound the pavement) with walking (which HURTS my legs when I walk fast - long stride - LOL) so in total I think I ran 2.75 and walked 1.25. I had been walking 3... (13 replies)
... Hello Readytorun4, I had a 3 level ACDF and this is my opinion only, I say yes to walking unsure about 4 miles seems a little long for being 3 weeks post op, but I would not be running or playing tennis at all yet. My Neurosurgeon told me that it takes at least 3 to 6 months for the bone to fuse. Running and playing tennis is very hard on the spine and I would think that... (13 replies)
... I had ACDF on C6/7 three weeks ago today. I have felt GREAT since I woke up in the recovery room. About a 11 days after the surgery I had a set back I guess it was from picking up something too heavy or doing laundry of just overdoing it. My shoulder blades and mid back were just killing me. Two days in bed as much as possible cured that and since then I've just felt... (13 replies)

... So please, give your body time to heal. Walk all you want, but give up the jogging until the doctor tells you that you are ready. ... (10 replies)
... Does stretching and massaging and light workouts such as jogging and pushups making it worse and preventing it from healing? ... (4 replies)
... I want to lose weight anyway ...... but the fact it affects my spine adds even more desire for me to lose weight. Do you think jogging on a treadmill (it has a 'cushioning' bounce type feature to it to absorb the person's running) will help or make my back worse? If I can't run and burn weight off, it seems a catch 22 scenario ... (7 replies)
... Thanks for your reply, yer my leg/calf only seems to hurt while im sitting down and then when I bend my leg out straight, it will hurt in my calf region. I do a lot of walking now. I could probably even jog/run but I don't want to as of yet. I have been doing physio but hasn't been the best physio treatment as its done through the hospital. (3 replies)
... Welcome to the board. Sorry no one responded to you sooner. Surgery at the L5/S1 level can be a bit tricky when it comes to rehab...particularly in the case of a fusion, but I would imagine that a discectomy could cause some of the same issues.... Often the attachment where the hamstring attaches up near the edge of the buttocks can become sore and it makes the... (3 replies)
... Good morning and thank you WD for your insight. I am still waiting for the approval from workers comp. As for my symptoms, I guess I should be a bit more explanatory. The numbing in my arms at night has been going on for several years but only one or two nights a week. The majority of the numbing is on the left side. The right side has become more involved since my... (5 replies)
... I had ACDF on C5/C6 on April 27 and posted about a month ago. After talking more with my doctor, I have decided not to resume tennis and mountain hiking until Sept 1 (4 months after surgery) due to the risk of falling and hurting the fusion process. Instead I work out and walk briskly (and do jog up mild hills for short distances - the uphill means that I don't have much... (13 replies)
... Realhousewife: Thanks for the info - it is consistent with what others are telling me. The scary part is that even after 6 -12 months, everything might not return to normal. But it is reasonable to expect that at least some improvement will happen. It sounds from your post like you have seen some improvement. I plan to repost after some time has elapsed and I can judge... (13 replies)

... Hi Ready to run, I would agree with these guys about not pushing it. The pack of info I have had from my surgeon even forbids golf for ages post-operatively, I really admire your spirit though :) I am making a guess that your ACDF was for radiculopathy pain as mine will be for myelopathy (op is in 3 days) and I've been told to expect little or no change in mobility after my...
