Has anybody had to have a disc replacement and fusion in their lower back?

I am about to go under the knife to have a disc replacement and a fusion in my lower back. I am wondering if anyone else has had this done, and how long your recovery was before you could hunt both with a rifle and also with a bow? Im afraid I am going to loose this entire season in NY.

Had a good friend have a cervical fusion in his neck. It took him a year to recover but his archery has not faltered since. Only adverse effect is his ability to turn his head so much. He has to turn his shoulders a bit now.

I've had L5-s1 fused, I still hunt, though have trouble sitting as still as I used to in a stand. My ex has had 10 back sugeries(she has lupus and addicted to pain pills) To fully recover takes about 2 months but can do normal stuff after 4 weeks or so just hafta be careful

Yeah I had the L5 fused about 10 years ago , it would be a bad one if you miss the whole season

I think it may be very convenient. You can easily compare prices in different countries and find your dream hunting. Your opinion is highly needed!
