Post Operative Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation guidelines are just that: Guidelines. Not everyone will rehabilitate in the same way. Indeed, there are people who take a lot longer to rehabilitate following surgery, while other people take far less time to rehabilitate following surgery. Guidelines are a rough estimate for all patients as to how long they should expect to be immobilised or stiff and sore.
