lumbar fusion recovery time?
I am depressed. I went to see a surgon and he said what I did not want to hear. he said two discs need to be removed and fuse the vertebrae together.
I was a little out of sorts, even though I knew before going in and half the questions I had just never got asked. I know I have read other posts regarding back problems so I thought this would be a beter source of info.
Here is the bike related part:
How long before I will be able to ride again?
I have only talked to one other rider and he said two years for him!
I don't think I am a slow healer although I have nothing to comair this to. I have never even broke a bone.
I am 49 yrs old, a carpenter by trade I am not over weight, I'd say execpt for my back I am in good shape.
If it will be a long recovery time I will be forced to sell my wing, I have had it a year, still three years to pay on it.
who has had the fusion and how long before you could ride again???
