Curtis can do pretty much what he wants as long as it isn't weight bearing. meaning, no heavy lifting, heavy pushing or pulling. He can find things to do that don't require hauling 40 pound sheets of plywood around. How about cut and prime coat trim pieces or something? He can still mow the yard and even rake a few leaves!
A little indoor painting project perhaps? Man o man could I come up with a honey do list to keep him busy..LOL!
Most Docs limit weight lifting to 10 pounds for 4-6 weeks. Paul's Doc said 25 as long as he didn't need to squat to lift. He can squat if he feels like it but not as an excersise and not as he lifting more than 10 pounds... for now.
Tell that busy man (Curtis) he still needs to cool it on lifting, heavy pushing and pullng for a few more weeks the have at it! If ya tell him it elevates the risk of urinary problems and hernias, he'll listen. If he won't, whatchagonnado?
