It will vary: The healing time for a spinal fusion will vary greatly depending on your medical health, age, smoking history, weight, spinal pathology and surgical procedure. The acute healing time will be any where from 3 weeks to 4 months. The end result will not be apparent until 6mo - 1 year. Hope that helps.
