I'm new to the site. I'm having ALF surgery to L5/S1 on 17th August (1 week). I'm pretty clear on what happens at hospital and what to expect.
However, I have a 4 yr old and 5 1/2 yr old at home, so I would love to hear from people on what to expect once home ie what I will and won't be able to do, how long will I be laid up, when will I be able to drive again, when I will be able to look after the girls again etc.
Also I am going to Sydney from Canberra for my surgery and was wondering if anyone flew home after having they're surgery, i'd prefer to fly than sit in a car for 4 hours.
We are also flying to Fiji in October and i'm wondering if I will be active and raring to sightsee by then.
thanks in advance for your advice.
