Limitations of concrete spacer
I’ve had my spacer for three weeks. Are there any limitations to exercises such as pelvic thrust while on my back using a stability ball?

You are amazing if you can do all of that with your spacer. I couldn’t do much for months when I had my cement spacer.
I have had mine now for 2 1/2 months. I was told to stay off it for the first 2 weeks and then to gradually put weight on it over time. Now I can walk short distances without a crutch, but it hurts. I can straighten my knee completely but can only bend it about 100 degrees. They told me to stop at 90 degrees. I urge you to not overdue the stress on the spacer unless your Dr. and PT say it's ok. Mine certainly didn't! Good luck!
