Activity limitations - acdf

I am 2 weeks post acdf at C6/C7. Dr. said I will be in a hard collar for two months. My question is, how do I know when to escalate my activity levels? I was umpiring baseball. Will I have to wait until 100% fusion to resume that activity? What about routing activities? I am retired and my routines include yard work, garage hobbies, etc. Any insight would help.



  • Thanks for the responses. I guess I realize what you are saying to be true. Just looking for an optimistic future. I would not take anyone's opinion here as anything other than that. My surgeon has the ultimate say.

    By the way, this site has extremely helpful information. Thanks to all who contribute!
