I'd like to know how active people were after a lumbar fusion. My PT after surgery says no more than 2 hours sitting per day and no more than 30 minutes at a time. I haven't been told how much walking, standing, lying down I should do. The only comfortable position I've found has been reclined and changing the angle I'm reclined every 30-60 minutes. I'm not feeling much pain, but I'm pretty anxious every time I transition from laying in bed to standing, transition into bed, sitting on the toilet, basically any transition that requires a little more effort.
