Healing after multi-level lumbar fusion

Started by SG123 on 12/29/2020 9:33pm

I had a lumbar fusion on l3-s1 and a laminectomy on November 3,2020. I have spondy level 1, stenosis, and DDD. I’m 8 weeks out and have tremendous leg weakness, hip and leg pain. I have a terrible time getting up from a seated position and doing stairs. I can walk around for awhile but then I get exhausted. I’m wondering if this is normal? My dr says it is but I’m planning on going back to work as a teacher in two weeks and am not sure if I will be able to do it.
