I have heard different stories. I am going in on the 18th for my 3 month post op and hoping for the best. I am tired of not being able to lift anything over 10 pounds because I would love to be able to keep my grandson overnight. He is only 5 months but much heavier than 10 pounds.
I just want to see if there is a timeline that I should be looking at. The DR says 9 months but I hear that some people fuse quicker and I am hoping to be one of them soon.
