Tomrrow morning I'll be headed to the hospital for my-long-delayed-but-finally-here scoliosis surgery and will be hospitalised for about a week or less.
After the appropriate amount of recovery from the surgery I've been recommended to do some physical exercies to toughen the muscles around the area of the spine that will be worked. I've been suggested swimming, jogging and cycling so far, but I want to ask you guys what else you'd suggest.
As for my diet, I'm pretty sure it will have to change from what it is now (pretty bad, microwave burgers everyday, soda and a variety of unhealthy and cheaps nacks). I've never been much of a fitness person because I've never really been overweight (not to mention I've always lack the willpower and diligence for such things) but what would you guys suggest in terms of diatry changes in order to make sure my recovery period goes well?

Doesn't add up.
>asking advice on an anonymous imageboard
>not asking the person responsible for said surgery
I would be happy to know this was bait. But I'm almost certain it is not.
most've had was a bear belly, I don't know, high metabolism or something?
as for that, don't expect the NHS to actually keep in touch with their patients. They cancelled my surgery and I only found out about it 4 days before from some nurse because she told me she wasn't sure if my surgery was on the day that I claimed it was when I went for the final assessment day, so she checked the system for me and it said they cancelled it about a week before yet they didn't even bother to get in touch with me based on that.
>i've been recommended to do some physical exercises by doctors who have been studying for almost a decade about the human body and specialized in spinal conditions
>HEY 4CHIN WAT U THINK I SHUD DO XD?
How much is your curvature? American doctors are quite aggressive with scoliosis treatment (suggesting surgery asap)
Muscle strengthening on your back can do wonders for the pain, but you have to be committed- much more than the regular 3h/week fitizen
This is mainly what I was wondering about. I know for a while I won't be allowed to lift anything, especially using my back but I'm more so wondering about exercise in that period, which cuts out lifing.
Do you think maybe some lifting would be okay if I'm just using my arms? My legs are something I would like to work on too (dont know if that's a good thing as a guy desu) which is why I'm thinking of doing some cycling also to tone them a bit.
Not constant pain but more like contant acheing. I'm turning 19 in June. I've never bothered to learn to swim but maybe I should since it really is the best form of exercise because all the muscles in the body are being used.
