Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

That is quite a fusion you've had!

I'm sure you know that recovery times vary from person to person and can depend on many factors. These factors include your health before the fusion, your age, how much physical therapy you do and your aftercare in general.

You should have an aftercare plan that includes therapy (yoga is great too, when you're up for it). The healthier you are to begin with and the more support you have, you should be looking at a 3 month recovery but bear in mind you've had quite a fusion and you could be looking at months more. You haven't given us any information about yourself or your aftercare plan so we can only speak generally.
Good luck in your recovery.
