Any advice would be great.
I had a L5-S1 spinal fusion on Nov 4th, 2008. I am scheduled to return to work May 1st, that will be 6 months post-op for me. I am an international flight attendant for a major airline. I will not be able to have any restrictions for work, unfortunately. I have to go back full force. Ill probably work 15 days per month.
At 3 1/2 months post-op I'm doing pretty well. I'm down to a half a vicodin each day plus Ibuprophen. I'm excersizing everyday. I completed 6 weeks of PT.
I'm just wondering if there are any of you out there with physically demanding jobs who have returned to work after a spinal fusion? How are you doing? My doctor says I should be perfectly fine going back. Any help would be appreciated.
