I received some bad news the other day. I can either continue to live with searing pain in my lower back, or I can get a 3 level lumbar fusion. My question is, if I am to get the fusion will I ever be able to bear enough weight to go backpack hunting again? What will recovery time look like until I am able to do so if at all? And how limited will my range of motion be? I discussed this stuff with my doctor but because of the variables he doesn't want to give me any specifics Then have to eat his words, understandably. A little about me I am a 24 year old man. If anyone on here has ever gotten a fusion I would love to hear your story. Thanks in advance!
