My I Fuse surgery is scheduled for Aug 6, 2013. I would like to know what to expect from someone recently that had it done. I had a injection that took my horrible pain away. I had 5 days of relief, and then the pain came back with a vengence. That's what the Neurosurgeon was waiting to hear, so he could give his final diagnosis. He told I would be walking with minimal weight bearing for 6 to 8 weeks, and then PT. I've been reading what different people wrote and they were from 2012. I was wondering if it's been changed to minimal weight bearing, from no weight bearing, recently.
