    Hello BassPlayer14 

    welcome to spine-health

    Please give more information, all spine patients are different and outcome depends on many situations. There are lots of articles and discussions regarding fusions that you can research.

    Many members do not return to the forum after recovery they go back to work and getting on with their life.

    As Liz said, more information would be helpful, what levels, cervical or lumbar?

    I will tell you my story, which I consider a success, I have had 3 fusion surgeries, the first was L5 which was bone on bone prior to surgery, surgeon wanted to do L3-L4 during surgery, dummy me didn't let him do it, so I had that done a little over a year later, I went back to work after both surgeries, 4 weeks after first, 8 weeks after second, I have also had cervical fusion surgery,

    If I did not have other spinal problems, I don't think the fusion surgeries would be very much of a problem at all.

    There are many success stories of fusion patients, many that have went on to live a full and pain free life.

    Take care and keep us posted.
