I know everyone heals different but I am concerned if I am on the right track to healing. I had a Posterior Lumbar Fusion on 12/19 on L4/L5 with 1 small incision and my staples removed on 1/8. I feel like all went well but I have my doubts at time. My back feels weird.....like a deep ache. Can anyone share how their recovery was? I am walking as much as I can and I have started sitting in my recliner with my brace on. My most challenging moments is when I first wake up and I try to stand up straight. I go back to work on 2/13 and I just want to be certain I am on the right track. I know it takes several months to fully recover but needed some insight.
