I had back surgery about 2 years ago on my disc (lumbar laminotomy) L4/L5. Ever since the surgery I haven't really recovered the way I hoped to. I've had episodes of extreme pain (enough to see the dr. to get pain pill). Recently, the pain has gotten worse. I got an MRI a couple weeks ago. Got two opinions from two Dr.'s. I need surgery again.
What exercises you would recommend after my surgery. I am going to go to PT for at least 1-2 months after the surgery. Since this is my second surgery on the same disc I can't mess around anymore. I need to life properly and do exercises that don't compress the back. What are some leg exercises I can do? Which ones put the least pressure on my back?
