In brief: Depends

Recovery from thoracic spine surgery varies upon the type of surgery.
With lesser invasive techniques, anterior surgeries can be associated with short hospital stays. More traditional anterior and/or posterior procedures may involve longer hospitalization and recovery periods.

In brief: Recovery time varies

Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, smoker or not, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care.
Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.

Please stop this unethical use of cookbook answers for procedures you do not perform, and conditions you do not treat to get ratings. This is a disservice to the patient.
