In brief: Depends

Everyone is different and every case is different.
In general after a spine procedure, patients are walking around right away and most of the recovery happens in the first 6 weeks. However improvement can continue for months.

Double that if surgery was a fusion.

In brief: Ask your surgeon

It depends on how much the surgeon does.
The more work done, the longer it may take. If there is a fusion, it takes longer to heal. People vary in their recovery times too. Being better shape you are in before surgery helps. Ask your surgeon: she or he knows exactly what was done.
