Start simple: Starting simple is the key. Although walking may hurt your back, you have to start simple and build up to longer and longer walks. It will strengthen your back and help with fitness and make you feel better. Swimming is dependent on what your surgeon tells you. Usually 2 weeks is a time we tell our patients before swimming, but you need to check with your surgeon who can guide your activity best.
