Anyone have a fusion and have a toddler at home?
I am in bad shape right now and I am considering an anterior lumbar fusion on 3 discs that my orthopedic surgeon recommended. In fact, I have already decided to do it but waiting on insurance approval.
The biggest concern I have right now is that I have a very physical and brawny 2 year old boy and I am a stay at home mom. My husband works 4 nights a week and then has 4 days off so I am really concerned about how I am going to take care of my son the days he works. I have family and friends willing to come and help me but I really don't have any idea how long I really need help with him.
Has anyone been in this situation or something similar? What have you done? Do you have any advice for me?
