Good morning Rose!
Yes...it sounds like you have been doing a bit too much...and quite frankly. I was wondering how in the world you were able to do it.
I think I have read several times, that it can take 3 to 4 months before the fusion even starts....but not sure. Again it can take 12 to 18 months for it to heal completely. I have been known to get up from a guest visit here at the house, and head for the bed. If that is what you need to do, then by all means do it.
Even though your Dr said to go home and rest for 2 months...it may be important for you to keep walking...but cut it back a bit. Of course you need to follow your Dr's advice though.
Take care, and I'm glad you posted a report for us here.
