Recovery time for thoracic surgery
I am scheduled for thoracic surgery at t8/9 asap.  The surgeon is going to remove the disc, fuse t8/9 and install a titanium plate.  Has anyone done this, or know of the recovery time, will I be pain free after this?

I had the surgery done on 4/12/13 but not the fushion. I had not pain after surgery and a little bit over the first couple of weeks then no pain for a little over a week and now the pain is back. I have contacted the doctor and am waiting a response. Not sure what is next but the pain is almost as bad as it was before surgery.
