I will be having an L4-L5 fusion with laminectomy (TLIF) with bone graft on May 12th. Unfortunately we just moved into a home with a second story master bedroom. There are 15 stairs to get to the bedroom. There is a landing 8 steps up. Do I attempt to take the stairs or just sleep in a recliner downstairs? The recliners are new, so they take effort to open. They are not the kind that have a handle. I do have a full bathroom downstairs, which is a good thing. It is a walk-in shower, not a tub shower. I'm trying to get myself and the house prepped for the recovery period. There are also 5 total steps up to get into the house. Advice would be greatly appreciated.
