Re: How long to heal from a Spinal fusion
You asked how long to HEAL from a spinal fusion. The question is to ambiguous to be honest. It depends on the person, their issue, the type of fusion done, how many levels, lifestyle at home, etc. We are all different.
And what do you mean by heal? Well enough to work or as in the final product?
It can take up to 2 years for some people to fully fuse and recover from a one level fusion. As I am 20+ months from my surgery. I am fully fused as of 7 months, but was in no way "recovered". I am STILL recovering.
Hope this helps you some.
