What ever the surgeon prescribes. Varies from patient to patient.

I meant, what should a patient refrain from doing doing recovery.  I was told not to bend forward, lift anything heavy or strain. Is it okay to use my eyes a lot, as in reading or needlework or desk work?  My head would be forward in some of those activities.  Thanks for your suggestions.

Gernerally activities like reading, crafts, watching TV or movies are not restricted.
