Q. I'm scheduled for a spine fusion of my low back. Will I be able to get up and walk without difficulty after I have surgery?

A. After spine fusion surgery, some people need to use a walking aid such as a walker or cane for a short time. When you start walking, do a little at a time and be careful to avoid injury and complications. Try not to over-do it the first few times you get up and walk. Build up gradually to avoid a flare-up of symptoms.
