Riding an exercise bike sounds great, and I get the same numbness and (particularly) overheating, but I have worked my way up to half an hour on a recumbent elliptical machine. The heat and weakness subsides. It's temporary; brought on by effort in my case.
I whole heartedly agree. At this point i'm trying to do just something
every day, no matter how small like going to the shop, just to get out of the house. And as mentioned in the above post I stick to walking. I tried actual cycling for 5 mins the other day but honestly it just felt like my legs were being torn apart, felt awful for the next day, and I think it was too much. Walking is safe at the moment, lol, because this could be one big relapse still going on I don't want to poke it with a stick - so to speak.
Interesting, though, that you say the weakness subsides for you if you push through it... how about lead legs or burning? Do they figure for you?

Getting enough rest has never been a problem! lol
I don't think my body is healing in the sense of problems righting themselves or the procedure having done any good, but i'm sure my neck is dealing with the remnants of inflammation by the feel of it.
I'm realistic when it comes to this, i've put my body through a lot having the procedure done, i'm paying the price a bit now, it hasn't worked but at the same time I have to deal with the fallout and try and restore some balance for healing in the sense of levelling out. And that means good healthy food, mild exercise, and trying to stay upbeat
Thank you for taking the time to post, much appreciated x
