How soon after back fusion can we start cleaning especially vacuuming the house?

    Not until your doctor has cleared you to do so....
    Vacuuming is one of the more difficult and hardest pieces of work for anyone who has had a lumbar or cervical fusion

    I am a cervical patient, but my experience as well as warnings from doctors is that pushing/pulling is more difficult than it seems.  That, and vacuuming  isn't fun, so I would hold off and get a friend to help out.
