Man my surgery was years back but, it was failed surgery. In the meantime I have had more problems.. I just do what I can to keep from going under the knife again.. If I do lower body lifts there usually very light.. I do see doctor quit often and of coarse he wants to cut but I opt out of that..hopefully in few years after I get in better spot in my life to be able to try another surgery I will. Until then I'm gonna keep it light try to warm up good,massages ect... Thks for your reply I'm gonna try some of your excercises..
