I have been experiencing terrible lower back pain for some time now due to a Pars Defect in my L5 disk. Along with the pars defect i have fractures at L2 and L3, degenerative disk disease, and kyphosis. In 2 weeks I am getting a 360 fusion on my L5. If anyone has had this surgery could you please help me out and let me know what it was like after the surgery and how long it took to fully recover? I know i will be in the hospital for 3-5 days but how long does it take for the pain from the surgery to recede? And how long did it take for you to be able to fully function and move? Thanks.
