    Hi guys I’m postop day seven from an Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion 3 level.
    I’d like to get your opinion on when it’s safe to return to work. Of course I will go by doctors orders but I am just curious to know what you all think and what your experience was. I am a nurse , I work two jobs one job is full-time with three 12hour shift‘s and the other job is about an eight hour shift home health. However the home health job I have to lift 115 pound girl with that being said how many weeks do I need to heal? I realize everybody’s case is different but if I can get an idea of what the approximate time may be. Thanks and advance
