After the surgery you can do all the routine activities during the day except lifting heavy weights and bending. Hence, to prevent recurrence of hard disc, avoid doing these actions.
The best position for sleeping is lying on your back (lowest pressure on your spine) or lying on the side (with a pillow placed between the knees).
Patients who have been under microscopic lumbar discectomy surgery and the doctor has not used lumber screw for them, do not need to use medical lumbar belt, but for patients who have lumbar screw which means that they have had Spondylolysis, there is a special belt that should use it for three months all the time except when they want to sleep.
