Hi - I am scheduled to have a L4-L5/S1 fusion in May. This is the first time I've ever had any type of surgery like this (besides my c-sects). There are so many questions I have rolling around in my head. One of them is, is there ever a chance that a person is put into rehab after the hospital discharges? I ask because I live in a townhouse where the is many stairs leading to the bed/bath room and I've read conflicting info that says doctors don't want you going up alot of stairs and others say it's ok to do. I don't know what will happen if I can't get about to walk when I can't go downstairs.
