What is the expected recovery time and activity from spondylosyndesis?
Recovery time varies from 6 weeks to 3 months. During a recovery it is important not to bend, twist, or lift anything heavy.Ê
Patient recovery time is entirely dependent on the severity of the issue or injury. The patients with the less severe cases will be expected to heal quicker than those with a moderate or severe situation when they first got checked. Also, recovery time is dependent on the patient's immune system and their health constitution.
Make sure to talk with your surgeon about what they believe will be your expected time of recovery from thyroid surgery. Typically a patient will need to stay at the hospital for one night post surgery. Full recovery from the surgery can take about a week, sometimes more, depending upon a patients age and if they undergo a full or partial thyroidectomy.
