Hi Bob and Brad community. I love watching Bob and Brad videos and glad to see this new community forum. I have recently had Cauda Equina Syndrome and had to have an emergency discectomy. I had a good outcome and I only have a small amount of back pain remaining. My bad leg is a bit weak, has quite a bit of numbness and I occasionally get some pains and cramps.
I have heard that there is some risk of the disc re-herniating which is a bit worrying. I would like some advice on how to look after my back and strengthen it. I was thinking about some exercises but also some advice on what is safe to do long term. Like how much I can lift and is there anything I should avoid. I want to get back to my normal life and things, so I don’t want to be avoiding things I could safely do.
