Hi. I am scheduled for a laminectomy on L4, 5, and S1 in a few weeks and am wondering if anyone can give me some advice on the use of stairs after surgery. I've seen a great deal of info about walking daily, but I've not been able to find anything about going up and down stairs. I'm trying to find this out before, as my apartment is 2 floors and I may need to have a bed moved down to the ground floor if stairs are not recommended. Any info is appreciated.
