In brief: Depends

Fusions can be done in different ways.
A more minimally invasive procedure ( if appropriate) could have you back in 2-4 weeks. Other types could take months for recovery. Realize that the underlying problem that requires a fusion determines how extensive the procedure has to be. In addition, a t12-l1 fusion is an unusual place to need this type of surgery, so more info would be needed.
