I am having a PLIF with instrumentation at the L5S1 level on August 21st. I have been told I'll likely be in hospital 4 nights and that I won't be able to sit for more than 15 mintes at a time post-op. I have been told that for the return home I must either lie n the back (which I find hard to picture) or sit in front with the seat fully reclined (I am not sure mine even does that).I live about 90 minutes drive from the hospital. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for me?
I am also wondering whether it would be smart to rent an electric bed post-op. Any thoughts on that?
