I just had L5/S1 Spinal Fusion 2 weeks ago. When do you all think I can lift my 20 pound 1 yr old baby boy?
The physical theropist at the hospital said 3 months, the doctor said 6 weeks or sooner, the assisting doctor said maybe even 3 weeks! I cant imagine 3 weeks with the pain I am still in!
The fusion I had was to remove an aged disc caused by a spondylolisthesis, and to also fix the spondo. They used titanium cage and pins around synthetic bone.
