Hello, I am almost 90 days post op. I had a fusion from T10-S1. The recovery has been a long, winding road. I start PT in Nov. I am still on all restrictions. My mobility is good, still using a cane. My dr ordered a bone growth stimulator. I have pain in my lower back and really achy in my hips (my spine is anchored to my pelvis/hips). My employer is anxious for me to come back but my dr is saying he wants me off for a total of 6 months. My goal is to go back by the end of next month. Is this realistic? Any advice for recovery?
