Lifting 50# after being cleared - timeline?

When do doctors usually give the ok to lift 50 lbs? Is that usually 8 weeks or is that usually longer? We make furniture and I have been postponing large pieces. I told customers 8 weeks but now Im thinking maybe thats not ok. I will ask my Dr on the 9th but wondering if anyone else has been told when heavy lifting is safe?

Re: Lifting 50# after being cleared - timeline?

I've moved your question from a reply to another thread to its own topic - it is a separate concern from the original question on the other thread .

You'll be cleared from restrictions either at your 6 or 8 week appointment... but that doesn't necessarily mean you can pick up where you left off prior to surgery. At 2-1/2 months I could hoist 30# office boxes around easily enough, but I still felt it on the 50# ones and got help. Next time I needed to move 50# boxes a few months later, it wasn't a problem.

You'll likely have to build up.

Thanks! I actually dont know what weight I lift daily, we usually carry furniture together and lift from a table not from the floor so I bet I can get back into it soon after 6 weeks. I will for sure ask my Doctor!
