Okay, as you can see by my signature, have a bit of a large surgery coming up in 7 days plus a wake up (sorry, ex military humor there....). Okay, how many of you had 4+ levels done from the back had a nurse or other medical professional come to their house to change dressings and such? My hubby is "not" comfortable with changing dressings, and thinks a professional should come to take care of that, and showers or food or what have you for the first week or two??
I've had two fusions (ACDF), and didn't really need help. Is posterior that
different? I mean, from what I've gotten in posts, and too in chat, it is more painful to recover from, but do I really (short of wound issues) need someone to come here and help me? My incision will be between 12 and 15 inches.... Thanks in advance for your thoughts or experience.
