I had back surgery a few months ago from broken discs. I'm 24 and kind of feeling down because I can't really move in all the ways I used to. please encourage me! Also if you have any suggestions on good exercises and stretches. I'm new at this and would appreciate the feedback

I agree with Lee T. You should take it easy. I would suggest starting out with just some light stretching exercises. However, you should get your doctor's Ok beforehand.

Get out and walk. Check with your MD or a Physical Therapist as to what exercises are safe for you at this time as they can all depend on your surgery and what procedure was done and how involved .

You should sit this out. Maybe heal a little. Plus, what is your fitness goals? Lose weight or build muscle?

Either way, relax and take it easy. Baby steps.
