I'm a new member. I'm having a Lumbar Fusion L5-S1 mid July. My surgeon will most likely do a 360 (anterior / posterior). I'm curious how long until I will be able to return to work at my desk job. I work for "The Evil Empire" aka a bank and would much rather take the time off during the good times. I had an ACDF w/ instrumentation in Dec 2007 and was literally able to take conference calls in less than a week and back in the office in about 7 days. Yes most people thought that was too soon. Honestly though, while it sucked, I think getting out of the house quickly helped in my recovery. Also, any post surgical care advice? I've read some horror stories.
Thanks in advance;
