Hello :Loulou,

Welcome to the Healthboards. I had a two level fusion with infuse. I am only 3 months post op and still have pain but the back pain is finally starting to ease. I am still suffering with muscle and nerve pain but that could take several months to heal if not permanent. My surgery was only about 3 1/2 hours. Mine was much shorter because I had infuse. I have 2 rods and six screws. It is still to soon to say if my fusion will be a success. My neuro told me that it takes about 3 months till 1 year to fuse and some patients even longer.

Have a great day.
