In brief: Back fusion
Yes, but only after your physician tells you it is ok to return to running and instructs you on what and what you cannot do.

In brief: Yes
Typically, healing from a spine fusion reaches its maximum at 6 months.
Beyond then, most patients can resume activities as tolerated per their symptoms. The treating surgeon has the best perspective of a patient's condition and should be consulted about allowable activities.
