I'm due to have a spinal fusion and decompression in 1 weeks time and have a few questions which I've not been able to find the answers to - hopefully someone will come along and be able to help.
1. I've been told that I have to lay down for 2 weeks post op (no sitting at all) and was wondering when I will be able to start some exercise and what exercise that will be/frequency also.
2. My surgeon says I will be in hospital between 1 and 5 nights - how many nights were you in for?
3. My surgeon says I will return to work after 4 - 6 weeks....how long were you off? (I work in a creche with kiddie winks)
4. Finally, I'm so nervous about an operation in general as I've only ever had keyhole surgery before and I'm so nervous I actually feel sick! Any words of wisdom will be greatly welcomed
many thanks xx
