Hey everyone, at what point after surgery were your restrictions removed? (Like lifting, bending, twisting, sports, driving, etc?) It seems to be a little different for everyone. Is it related to age at all? Are people who are older more restricted for longer, or does it just depend on the surgeon?

Thanks! :D

I think it's mostly the surgeon's decision, but mine were lifted at 3 months the first time and now at least 6 months to a year, as this surgeon is being more careful and I agree with him.

Hi...

It depends on the surgeon and the patient, so you should check with your surgeon. Here are some general guidelines:

Hi Linda! Thank you that is exactly what I wanted! Thanks so much. I do have to say I found the "N/A" under "teenagers" for having sex kind of amusing... ;)

So glad to have that list. Have been looking for that EVERYWHERE :D ! Anyone know how long before you can dance? Or how long in general for an adult to lift 25/50 lbs.?
