I am getting ready to have this surgery done in a couple weeks. My daughter is coming in from Texas, 10 hr drive to help me. She is coming 3 days early so I can hopefully show her where everything is around here, pharmacist, groceries, dr's., etc.... I am trying to prepare her and myself for this. I am scared I will do something wrong or something will go wrong accidentally while recovering. I have done ALOT of reading on this and the doctor was also very informative, but realized AFTER the fact I still had a lot of questions. As far as I can tell, I can only stand with a walker or lay down? Is this true and if so, how do I sit on the toilet, bend to get into a laying position in a recline or a bed? I desperately need to know how to deal with this - can someone help me here. I have more questions, but this is a good one to start with. Oh, and to top it off, I am 5'5" tall and only weigh 103 lbs., been this size my entire life.
