Ah Macker think you're ok with cups and shampoo  :).  Its more about lifting shopping bags/dogs/small children/heavy bulky objects.  Basically anything that will majorly engage the tummy muscles.

so think you're ok hun.

hi macker1,

i think heavy lifting is anything over around 10 pounds,
everyday things are ok to be lifting. if you think its too heavey then it more than likely is..

When i was with occ health last week, i was told to do no manual handling although i do home visits and carry everything but the kitchen sink i will maybe have to book in easy things so im not carrying anything to heavy.

What about a fat cat? ;D

I had to lift and I am still lifting heavy things - was so early can you imagine explaining AGAIN to employers you canno lift when its part of your job ? 
I am a stock controller so I am constantly lifting veyr heavy items - also I have 2 big girls at home which I am always lifting .
I think as long as you lift correctly - use your legs more than your back and dont do any sudden jerky movements.
The 2 ww is such a head wrecker.
For first few times I just took to my bed for the whoel time and did nothing at all and it still didnt work .

THe 2 times it worked for me I had transfer - flew back that day - straight to work the following day - so is it luck ???  Is it a numbers game ???  Who can tell.

Of course we want to do everything to make it work so for your own peace of mind my advice is - dont do anything you would regret - we have all put ourselves through the torture of - what if I didnt do such and such a thing , would it have worked then - so look after yourselve no. 1
