    I have had two lumbar fusion surgeries myself, if this helps any, at around that 4 week mark is when I really started to feel better, walking was easier, heck everything got easier, and I hope it is that way for you also.

    I feel your pain about the back brace, I have had several over the last 30+ years, I have never found one that I liked, after I was through with the last one, and I was ready, I hung it up in a tree and shot it several times with a shotgun, wasn't much left of it, so at least I will never have to wear that one again, the satisfaction was real, had a smile for 2 days.

    Take care of yourself and keep us posted on your progress
