Talk with your doctor.
It depends upon what type of surgery, and why you are having the surgery.
It also depends upon how healthy you are to start out with.
You may get some other answers in my book -- THE BACK PAIN SOLUTION. It can be found on Amazon.
Fully understand the specific cause of your pain - different treatment options, the risks of surgery as well as expectations without surgery.
