Hi all, I am just a couple weeks out of lumbar spinal fusion also have scoliosis and have the rods and screws installed in the L45 S1. I guess I thought I was stronger. I'm married with older teens and I believed that I would have help in recovery but as it turns out I dont. So I am alone in this journey. I will love any advise you can give me. I am working with the bare minimum sorry to complain but I am so alone, I wake in the nite with pain from surgery alone. I live in an Apt with alot of stairs so it's hard walking. Eating is hard because I dont have the big appetite and I was the cook so I dont eat what the family eats and my husband says we cant make two different meals, I lost alot of blood but I dont have vitamins and insurance wont cover. Please any advice on how to heal. Lastly I tell my husband he is kneeing me in my back when we sleep but he refuses to sleep on the couch should I just sleep in my brace? Thanks for your time.
