In brief: Depends

Recovery from the surgical wound pain is usually 1-2 weeks.
The resumption of work and/or activities is dependent upon your doctor, type of fusion, and pathology. Most bone healing to a clinical "solid" fusion can take up to a minimum of 4-6 months, and bone maturation can occur over years.
