My surgery is coming up and I have some questions. I am having a 2 level fusion (i'm not sure of all the technical terms) L4/5 and L5/S1. With hardware.
I will have to wear the big plastic brace for 2 months or until I fuse - question : what is the most comfortable to wear while wearing this brace. I assume the brace is worn over your shirt? So is a loose shirt easier or a tight shirt?
What about pants? Do they matter - are you mostly wearing light sweat type pants?
Also for the hospital what kind of clothing did you have there? I was going to bring a lightweight longer length robe, but how about pj's - I assume that after the catheter is removed I can wear my pj bottoms?
Thanks for any advice.... countdown is on and I am starting to freak out!
