I had to have a laminectomy, L5, and am 4 weeks post op.
I am seeing my Dr. tomorrow, and am wondering if you have any adivce about post- op exercises. I am guessing the cobra for flexibility is OK.
I am on bending/lifting restrictions, but ready to rebuild" post op. any advice?

Hi considerthis,

Only advice I would have is to follow your doctor's and physical therapist's instructions and don't start the RYB exercises until they give the approval.

The important thing right now is a successful post-op recovery. No need to rush things.

Keep us posted on your recovery,
