In brief: It varies.

Because every individual recovers at a different rate, it is difficult to give an exact length of rehabilitation time.
Generally speaking, most patients can expect a couple of weeks for rehabilitation after a single level spinal fusion surgery.

In brief: Depends

The nature and duration of postoperative recovery would depend on the site and type of fusion.
Check with your surgeon.
