I don't know the extent of your problem. But I will offer this piece of advice. What ever the doctor tells you NOT to do, LISTEN!
If he says 10 lbs. max, don't lfit more.
Another piece of advice, if you can avoid being fused, do so.
Once you get a fusion you are on a long downward spiral.
Fusion is a last resort.
Seek out other opinions, other doctors and other courses of action.
Best of luck to ya.

I had to wait 90 days just to see the dr.when mine happened then another 30 days till they could operate.
I spent 4 months layin' on the couch eating pain pills. NOT FUN!!!
Look at the bright side.............they could have told ya it would be 4 weeks not just one.
