After a lumbar fusion, how long might I be off of work?

Started by Kteacher on 10/05/2011 6:47pm

I really don't know what to expect. I have disk instability, and disk degeneration - 2 very fixable issues...
and I'm in good health, but I'm also 52. Is it reasonable for me to expect to be back to work in 4 weeks? 6 weeks? 6 months?? I want to go into this mentally being willing to allow myself enough time to heal...
but I am already anxious to get back to work and I haven't even left yet! Thanks!

I think you have to ask your surgeon that question.I would plan on at least 6 months,but it all depends on what type of surgery you have.
