After discussing everything with my doctor yesterday we both had decided that surgery is my best option. I have a few questions that I plan to ask when I go back but interested to see if I missed anything? We are awaiting for WC to approve it but EDITED (My Doctor) told me since we have a court order we shouldn't have any problems.
Here is the list that I have to ask.
How far can I bend down? Example getting things out of the refrigerator.
Lifting how much will you be allowed to lift?
Tub Baths, When afterwards can I take them? With assistance from my husband.
Riding to the store locally and long distance would be about 35 miles?
Walking how much walking can I do? I have been walking trying to stay pretty fit and would like to be able to continue.
Walking outside as long as someone is right there with me? This also means going down steps to the yard?
Walker or Cane will I need to use one after surgery?
Last can I use my laptop sitting on the couch? I have one of those tables that slide underneath your furniture.
Sexual Activity when will you be able to have it after surgery?
If anyone can think of anymore I would greatly appreciate it. I want to make sure I have all my T's crossed and my I's dotted as they say before my surgery.
