My procedure is next week and so far I was given an estimate of two weeks, no driving, twisting, bending, lifting, pushing pulling. I am really tring to find what others have experienced with recovery. I know that everyone is different and I have read on sites what expected recovery is. What I want is to hear from others what they went through. I want to have a general idea of what to expect. Will I be walking around? Will I be in bed for a few days? Will I need a walker for a few days? Do I need to get a toilet riser? Any comments will be appreciated. By the way there will be no fusion at this time. Thank you!
