Kevin Hart is facing a long road to recovery after his devastating car wreck, and we are told it will be at least 4 months before the comedian will be able to get back to work making movies.
Sources close to the situation tell us, Hart's surgeons had to fuse his spine in three different places after it was determined he endured multiple fractures in his back.
The surgery was a success, but the "Jumanji" star is now facing at least 4 months of physical therapy, which we're told will be very painful and arduous.
We're told the process will start in the hospital, so Hart can be guided and assisted by medical professionals.
As soon as doctors and physical therapist's feel like Hart is stable enough to do the PT in an outpatient environment, we're told he will be released from the hospital.
"It helps that he was physically in such great shape," one source told us.
The star, who regularly showcases his workouts on social media, is in tip-top physical shape.
Hart and his team are hopeful his fitness will allow him to recover at a quicker pace than the doctors expect.
We're told Hart's dedication to his personal health and wellness, including a flawless diet, will help in the process.
We're told Hart does have several projects lined up, but that when he's ready, he may have to begin with shooting the less physical roles and scenes as he gets back to full strength.
As we reported, Hart was injured when his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda veered off the road near his home and into an embankment.
Two of his passengers, including his wife's personal trainer, had to be cut from the wreckage during a rescue by emergency responders.
Hart's wife, Eniko, recently broke her silence and was confident to that her husband will make a full recovery.
