Hello Benny 6057 :wave:
I had my fusion in 2003. It was L5-S1 with hardware. I used my own bone. I just had a ACDF on C5-6, C6-7 and I used my own bone too. The reason I used my own bone was I do not trust these bone banks. They just had a big arrest up in New York city with funeral directors selling corpses bones and other body parts for profit!! They were not even testing these body parts for diseases. It took me a good 6 months to recover from my fusion. If I was you I would not be lifting anything (including newborns). Your range of motion will surprise you. You will have more than you think. Are they going in thru the front or the back? Now the hard part. They operated on me to stabilize my spine I had a Ortho spine surgeon and a Neuro spine surgeon (All they do is spines day in and day out). They told me going in that if they were lucky they could reduce my pain level 50%. Well everything was ok for 2 years then the pain came back with a vengence. I now see a pain mangement doctor. I think you are going to have a hard time running or jogging after this. The reason is not the fusion it the pressure it puts on the upward disks. If I was you I would just take it day by day and see what happens.

Hi. I can relate to all of the above. My doctor is under investigation for fraud and taking kickbacks. He cared more about lining his pockets than he did about his patients. I agree with you and taking it day by day is right. I can't do much of anything anymore. I have serious nerve damage from all the manipulation and I have trouble severely just trying to pick up my new grandbaby. Once you have one surgery on your spine anywhere then you better get ready for more.
