I agree that you should consult your doctor, but to answer your question in a general way, you should invest in a door anchor. Set the anchor up high and you can do lat pulldowns with the band.

This is most definitely something you should ask your doctor about or possibly get a referral to a physical therapist to develop a program that will not be contraindicated for your situation. Unfortunately none of our members or experts are in a position to offer such exercise recommendations with someone recovering from surgery, illness or an injury. Sorry.

Due to a spinal fusion, my doctor recommends using resistance bands for back exercises and avoiding deadlifts/dumbbell rows. I don't have access to a gym so I can't use the lat pulldown machine and I can't do pullups because I am not strong enough. Can anyone recommend some good ways to work the lats with resistance bands?
