I know this question could have tons of different answers but I need a two level fusion and I’m really wondering how long the recovery is in terms of being able to return to a desk job. Any input is appreciated.
Just for a little background I am 28 years old and the fusion would be L4 to L5 and L5 to S1. I am overweight. My surgeon said he will agree to do the surgery when I weigh 250 pounds. Of course I’d like to lose more since I just had weight-loss surgery but it all depends on if I can keep the pain under control to gain more time to lose more weight.
