I have finally been approved by work comp to receive my L4-S1 anterior & posterior lumbar fusion (18 months post injury). I don't yet have a date. I do know I'll only be in the hospital 1 night then discharged home. I have read the list of items to have for recovery but am looking for any recovery pointers I can get. If it helps with the advice, I'll be home alone most of the time while my husband is at work & my children are at school. My bedroom & full bathroom are up 15 stairs. We are thinking of getting a recliner to make getting myself up & down easier than our sectional. Any advice/pointers are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
