2 Back operations in six months now how long does it take to recover.
I am 49 years old and have had two back operations in the last six months. In addition to this, I have a physical disability, known as cerebral palsy and is affecting my rate of progression. I am wondering if anybody has had two back surgeries within a six-month period and an already, existing disabling condition known as cerebral palsy or another orthopedic disorder.
The first was a L1-L4 herniated disc which was ruptured disc removed at the L3- L4 lumbar area and this surgery was completed in July. My recuperation was extremely slow, and the pain was extremely persistent. For example, I had difficulty completing basic physical therapyand would have extreme pain for days after therapy.
In December, they found a cyst on the L3 level, and it had to be removed immediately in order to prevent
paralysis in my left leg. The surgery was done two months ago, and I still have chronic
My question is: could people people please share with me their rate of recovery, and how long it took them to return to everyday life without chronic pain. Is chronic pain, something that is associated with a spinal fusion for the long-term or does it decrease over time? I would like to return to work, but I'm wondering if it's going to take more than seven months
after spinal fusion? .
