I'm sorry I'm new here and I'm reading through these posts and so many are saying that 2 years is the time it takes for a fusion to heal.(?) Then I see others going back to work at 3 months!! My Doc says we will know where we stand at 6 to 9 months. I'm so confused. I'm very depressed. I'm only 31 why can't I get better??? Okay I'll go take my Vicodin and Klonopin now.
