    I would avoid squatting this early. If you have to kneel down but no twisting getting up. You can really pull on that lower fusion. It is too early for you to pull on that.

    A call or note to your surgeon's office will give you the answer. You'd hate to follow advice, no matter how well-meaning, from someone other than your surgeon who is familiar with your back for something as important as this!

    Glad to hear how well you're doing. Take it easy and keep up the good work!
