Dr. Barba shares when a woman can return to lifting heavy objects after undergoing minimally invasive spine surgery.
After your minimally invasive spine surgery, you can carry out simple lifting within a day or two, but heavy lifting, anything over ten pounds, we usually recommend at least two to three weeks before you start lifting heavier objects such as your child whereas you want to take special care.
