It's been one and a half month from the surgery and I have no pain in my back or ankle and I will start walking as my doctor says in a month or so ....my question is after removing the rods in my back well I be able to left weights again ? And about my ankle is it possible for me to play football again ?!
It is very difficult to assess the answer to your question. I am sorry to disappoint you but it may take about 18 months or more before you can start playing sports. Also, depending on the healing, your doctor may or may not remove the rods. It is too early in the day to comment on your rehabilitation and recovery. But if your bones heal well and can take the stress, then you may be able to return to active sports and weight lifting. Please discuss the progress with your doctor. Take care!
