Non union and now Posterior Trnasoforaminal Lumbar Fusion

It has been 9 years since Lumbar fusion of L3-4, 4-5 with very little fusion.  Now am facing removal of hardware with replacement of hardware and cages on L3-4, 4-5, 5-S1.  Neurosurgeon has been working with me for 8 months and told me to wait until I could no longer stand pain and then we would repair, I am now at that point, I have had 3 epidural injection with little relief.  In the mean time I had fusion of C4-5,5-6,6-7, due to cord compression.  I am 3 months out and will have next procedure the week between Christmas and New Year.  Has anyone had these procedures this close together and how long is the recovery time?  I am having some relief regarding the cervical fusion. Would appreciate any input.  Thanks and Merry Christmas!
