Depend: Recovery time is dependent on the type of surgery that is performed. Most microdiscectomies have full recovery in 3 to 6 weeks...Depending on peeexidting nerve damage. Most fusions will take 8 to 12 weeks to recover. All will begin walking on the same day of surgery. Many procedures are done as outpatient.
