Hi, I am a newbie. I have had two Laminectomies about 10 years/11 years ago. They helped a little but really not much. The last six months I have been in extreme pain and the doctor is doing a Minimal Lumbar fusion with hardware (just one). I have been reading a lot (Probably too much) and so many different answers. He said I would be in the hospital one-two days. I have friends staying with me for two weeks as I live alone and have two cats to worry
about. I am a little worried about what to expect after that. I think I'll post my questions in a list and please feel free to give me your opinion on what you think!
1) will I be able to feed my cats after 2 weeks?
2) Doctor mentioned going back to work after 3 weeks and this is what I told my boss?
3) This is the big question... I jets ski in a group. We ride only smooth water, I do no
lifting, just ride. Do you think in 3 months I can do this or a chance I can?? This is my
favorite thing to do. No horseplay just smooth riding.
4) I think mostly I am worried about how to take care of myself or much can I do or bend at
the knees to feed my babies??
Your input is greatly appreciated. I have friends that will help after that but I can't expect them to
be there full-time after 2 weeks.
