Hi all, I am 3 weeks post L4 5 fusion and laminectomy. I can't stop crying. Is it the anesthesia? I'm making myself crazy. I also didn't realize the long recovery involved in a fusion. Has anyone healed after 3 months? I took care of my grandsons 3 days a week and miss them so much. I think that is part of my tears. I don't know if I would have done this if I knew length of recovery. Now they have to start day care.
