  • Whoa, that's a loaded question. It depends on sooo many different things, especially just you and how you will recover. Some people get a ton of things back within the first month, some people take 6-12 months, and some never regain anything.
    I am 3 months out of a C3-6 fusion with a corpectomy of C5, and I am still at the frustrating stage. You'll find that you tend to hear the bad stories on hear, because we're not healed yet. All the people that are doing great are out enjoying this beautiful day!
