Hello I am a 30 year old male in good shape physically with a healthy diet. I have a herniated disk @L5S1
and am looking at lumbar fusion surgery. My surgeon says he will be going through my tummy and my back to remove the disk and perform the fusion. From what I understand, this is a pretty heavy surgery with a lengthy recovery time. I would like to hear from others who have had this procedure to get their experience with the surgery and recovery. I would love nothing more than to be back to normal life working out and going to work within 3 months but I know that's a long shot. Thanks in advance and I look forward to all responses.
