Re: Fusion or Not
I'm 10 weeks post-op from a L4-S1 fusion. Worked very hard on core and other strengthening to be in shape for the surgery. Was walking 5 miles a week post-op. At 10 weeks I've been cleared to do anything I want except running, jumping, and lifting over 40 pounds. Personally, I wouldn't want to go through the actual surgery again, so am glad I had both levels done at the same time. As you seem to be doing, find a good doc who is up to date on current procedures. Best of luck.
